As part of the investigation, police determined that a fight was taking place between two girls in the complex’s parking lot.

“A young suspect picked up a gun and fired it in the direction of the woman she was fighting; however, the shot hit a male juvenile bystander,” police said in a statement.

The 11-year-old boy was transported to hospital, where he died of his injuries, police said.

The suspect initially fled the scene but was later apprehended and charged, and she remains at the Henry Wade Juvenile Justice Center, police said.

A gun was recovered during the investigation, the agency added. Police do not release the names of those involved in the incident due to their age.

Vashunte Settles identified the boy as her son De’Evan McFall and said he died in front of her, according to CNN affiliate KTVT.

“Me having to testify and being there… I’ll never get over it,” he said.

Settles said his daughter was fighting a 14-year-old girl who then pulled a gun and fired the fatal bullet, missing it but hitting De’Evan.

“He was so innocent. He definitely didn’t deserve that,” Settles said.

“I just wish the younger generation would stop and think before doing unreasonable things, because in this situation, I’m not the only one suffering.”

Settles said he will miss De’Evan’s big smile and love of sports.

“Take this story and do something productive with it. May my child not die in vain and may this save someone else’s child,” she said.
