Texas woman accused in fatal shooting of 7-year-old child

MCKINNEY, Texas – A North Texas woman is facing a capital murder charge in the fatal shooting of a 7-year-old child.

Police say Brooke Craig was arrested early Friday in a dead-end street in Frisco, a suburb of Dallas, after leading the police on a car chase.

The police say they were called to a home in Greenville Thursday afternoon on a call about a disturbance. At the same time, they were told a 7-year-old gunshot victim was taken to Greenville Hunt Regional Medical Center. The child died shortly thereafter.

Craig has been named in a capital murder warrant related to the shooting.

The police have not released the name or gender of the child killed, not the relationship between Craig and the child.

Greenville is 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of Dallas.
