Sgt. R.L. Davis said the girl, who was not identified, took the rifle outside her home Thursday around noon and fired it. The bullet traveled through a fence and into the bedroom where Nghiem Ky Tahi was sleeping, killing him instantly. His wife found him when she returned from work that evening. Davis said it does not appear that the killing was intentional. He said the sheriff's department was investigating the shooting and would forward its findings to the district attorney's office.
