4-year-old NE Indiana girl shot by brother

PORTLAND, Ind. (AP) — Authorities in eastern Indiana say a 4-year-old girl was shot in the head when she dashed in front of her 8-year-old brother while he was target shooting.

Jay County sheriff's Capt. Patrick Wells tells WISH-TV that the shooting of Madison Dyer was a tragic accident.

The Star Press reports Madison was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital after the shooting Sunday night at a home near Portland but that a hospital spokesman said he couldn't give an update on her condition.

Police say several adults and children were around a campfire while the boy was shooting a .22-caliber rifle and Madison ran into the line of fire.
