An 11-year-old Pinal County girl has died in what’s being called an apparent accidental shooting at a home.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Tamra Ingersoll says Joan Plumb died at a Phoenix hospital after being flown from the Casa Grande hospital.

The shooting occurred Thursday night at a home just outside Casa Grande.

Detectives determined the shooting was accidental. A gun being handled by a juvenile in the home was discharged, striking Joan.

There were two other children in the home at the time along with Joan’s father. The shooting happened in the family room of the residence.
