— A Littleton woman faces charges in the accidental shooting of her 3-year-old daughter late last month, the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office said.


Kisha B. Harper, 37, of 128 Hickey Hill Drive, was charged Friday with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. Harper turned herself in to authorities.

Harper’s bond was set at $5,000.

The child was shot in the abdomen by a single bullet in her home on Aug. 23. She remains in critical condition.

Investigators said she was home with both of her parents at the time, but declined to comment on specifics of how it happened.

The child’s name was not released and authorities have not said which hospital she is being treated at.
