HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. — An 11-year-old Tennessee girl was shot and killed on Monday, and police are investigating it as a homicide.

Authorities told WKRN the girl got off her school bus at her Hendersonville home. When she went inside, she told her father she had been shot.

The girl’s father took her to TriStar Hendersonville Medical Center. She was then flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville where she died less than two hours later, WKRN reports.

Det. Jim Vaughn with Hendersonville police told WSMV the shooting did not happen on the bus, based on an interview with the bus driver.

Vaughn said police believe the shooting happened between the girl getting off the bus and going into the home.

The investigation is ongoing.

    Depending on where she was shot and how long the bus drive was, she could have possibly been shot BEFORE she got on the bus. If she wasn’t shot in any major organs, or if a major organ was just grazed, and if it was a short bus ride, she could have been shot between when school let out and she climbed on the bus. I almost don’t want to consider this, but maybe she was shot ON the bus. Explore every possibility.
