ABERDEEN - An 8-year-old Aberdeen girl died Tuesday morning as a result of a accidental shooting.

Nikala "Nikki" Moffett died as a result of injuries from an accidental shooting which occurred at her home Friday night about 11 p.m., said Monroe County Coroner Alan Gurley.

"There's no reason to believe there's any foul play involved," Gurley said.

Moffett died suddenly as she was about to be released from North Mississippi Medical Center Tuesday morning, Gurley said. Tests are under way following an autopsy to determine the exact cause of her death.
