LEWISTON -- A northern Utah toddler has died after her 9-year-old brother allegedly shot her in the head with a BB gun.

Cache County officials say the 3-year-old girl from Lewiston suffered a head injury after the shooting last Friday.

Sheriff's deputies say the girl's 11-year-old and 9-year-old brothers were pumping their BB guns and shooting her with air.

A BB that was still in the 9-year-old boy's gun discharged and wounded her on the left side of the head.

The girl was taken to two different hospitals but died of her injuries.

The incident is still under investigation.
