A father and son in New Mexico are being charged after police say that a 13-year-old girl was shot dead.
The New Mexico State Police said that while four minors were at a Questa, New Mexico, residence listening to music, a 14-year-old male took out a pistol at around 2:30 p.m. on July 28 and shot a 13-year-old girl. The teenage girl was later pronounced dead, according to officials.
After shooting the 13-year-old female, the 14-year-old male allegedly dragged her body outside and went back inside the residence.
The 14-year-old’s father, William Brown, 39, later returned to the residence and both allegedly refused to come out when demanded by officers for 30 minutes.
