11-year-old Tennessee boy shoots 8-year-old girl over argument about puppy

An 11-year-old boy in Tennessee shot and killed his next door neighbor, an 8-year-old girl, over an argument about a puppy Saturday, police said.
The young killer, a fifth-grade student at White Pine Elementary School, used his father’s 12-gauge shotgun to fire at Maykayla Dyer from inside his home around 7:30 p.m., WBIRreported.
The little girl, a third-grader at the same school, was hit in the chest and died in a hospital, police said.
Neighbors said the senseless shooting was sparked by the girl innocently declining to let the boy play with her dog.
“Wanting to see a puppy, the little girl laughed and told him no...and that was it,” neighbor Chasity Arwood told WBIR.
Jefferson County Sheriff G.W. (Bud) McCoig told the Daily News the shooting is one of the saddest crimes he has handled in 34 years of law enforcement.
"This one has really taken a toll," he said. "It's just an awful thing."
The boy, who has not been identified, was charged with first-degree murder in juvenile court,
He remains in custody, and a judge will decided whether to send the case to adult court.
