LUBBOCK, TX - Communities across the South Plains are in shock after a third grader at Lubbock Christian School was shot and killed by her grandfather during a hunting accident Friday night.

Hockley County investigators say a man accidentally shot and killed his nine-year-old granddaughter, during the hunting trip.

The accident happened in between Anton and Roundup Friday night around 8:30.

Hockley County Sheriff Kevin Davis says the hunter raised his rifle to shoot an animal. Seconds before firing, the girl moved into the line of fire and was shot in the head.

Her grandfather rushed her to University Medical Center in Lubbock where she died a few hours later.
