The Orlando Police Department said the girl faces second-degree murder charges. She was taken into custody and housed at a local juvenile justice center.
The girl’s mother was arrested last week on charges of negligent homicide, child neglect, negligent custody of a firearm and aggravated assault with a firearm, authorities said.
Police officials said the mother got into an argument with Lashun Rodgers, 41, outside an apartment complex late Memorial Day. The mother gave her daughter a bag, and the girl took the gun out of the bag and fired two shots, according to police.
Rodgers later died in a hospital.
Juvenile records in Florida are mostly confidential, so it’s not known if the girl has an attorney. Online records show that the mother was appointed a lawyer by prosecutors, but no further details were given.
