Indianapolis - A four-year-old boy fatally shot a three-year-old girl at a home on Indianapolis' west side Thursday, leading police to arrest the girl's mother on child neglect and drug charges.
Fiona Lee, 26, faces one count of felony child neglect, along with charges of possession of cocaine and possession of marijuana, after police were called to the home in the 200 block of North Sheffield Avenue just before 1 p.m.
Police then found three-year-old, Aunesti Lee Allen, lying on the ground, shot in the head.
According to Fox News, Lt. Jeff Duhamell said that the boy picked up a loaded .45-caliber handgun that had been left on a kitchen table in Fiona C. Lee's house Thursday and pointed it at the girl's head before firing.
Duhamell said Friday that the boy is the son of Lee's boyfriend, according to Indiana News.
Reported on The Indy Channel, Neighbors had told police that Lee came out of the house yelling for help, saying that the girl had been shot.
"She was screaming. She was out of her mind crying," said neighbor Robert Tremblay. "She was losing it."
"It's heartbreaking. She's a little girl, and she had so much ahead of her," said neighbor Maria Carmona. "She was only 3 years old. It's a loss to the family. It's a loss to the neighborhood."
Lee's daughter, Aunesti Lee Allen, died that day at Riley Hospital for Children just after 4:30 p.m.
Police then arrested the 26-year-old woman on child neglect and drug charges. She was being held Friday in the Marion County Jail.
