06/13/2018

(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A 2-year-old child who was shot Tuesday morning at a St. Joseph apartment complex has died, and one person charged in connection with her death.

KQ2-TV reports that St. Joseph police identified the girl as London Simmons.

Police received a call around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday for a report of a shooting at an apartment, located in the 1900 block of S. 12th Street, involving a child.

There were other children at the scene when the shooting happened, but no additional injuries are reported.

The TV station, citing court records, reports that 21-year-old Alexander Green has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say Green, of St. Joseph, was a relative of the victim.

According to a probable cause statement, witnesses told officers Green was asleep and left a loaded gun unattended. Three other children between the ages of 2 and 6 were also inside the apartment at the time.

The court document also stated that police found 475 grams of marijuana in four large bags and more than $3,700 in cash inside the apartment.

Green is scheduled for a court appearance on Friday.
