GAFFNEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Gaffney Police Department is asking for anyone with information about the slaying of a young girl to come forward.

Around 1:10 a.m. on Aug. 20, police were dispatched to an apartment on West Buford Street after multiple gunshots were fired into the front of one residence.

Investigators said LaMya Bradley, 8, was sitting on the couch in the apartment when a bullet pierced a window and struck her in the head. She was transported to Mary Black Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact the Gaffney Police Department at 864-489-8115 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
