    This is terribly sad....it appears to be a suicide by self-inflicted gunshot? Horrible for this poor girl and her loved ones, and also the emergency personnel who responded.

    @mm15...ok then, so how did she die? They say there were gunshots and she was dead. No other people were mentioned...

    Who shot her? If no foul play has been suspected, was it a suicide?! Wow, please don't tell me it is a suicide death of a 13 year old girl! My heart goes out to the family affected by this situation.
