WELDON, N.C. (AP) — Authorities in Halifax County are investigating the shooting death of a 2-year-old girl inside a home.

Police told local media outlets that officers were called at around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday after someone reported shots being fired into a house.

Officers say a 2-year-old girl was killed. Police Chief Mark Macon says a 54-year-old woman inside the home was also injured and was in critical condition at a local hospital.

Hours before the girl’s death, a teenager was wounded in another shooting outside Weldon. Authorities are still investigating both shootings and have not said if they are related.
