6-year-old girl wounded in shootout dies from her injuries

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A 6-year-old girl who was shot and wounded during a shootout on an Akron street earlier this month has died from her injuries. The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office said Mar’Viyah Jones, of Akron, died at a hospital Tuesday night. Jones was wounded on Sept. 10, when authorities say two men in vehicles began arguing and then started shooting at each other.  Jones was among six children riding in one of the vehicles, and she was shot along with another child, who suffered a graze wound. Both drivers are facing charges in the shootout. But authorities haven't said what sparked the argument.
