DEPUTIES: Funeral Set For 11-Year-Old Shot By Father

The funeral for an 11-year-old girl, who deputies say was shot by her father, will be held Friday in Tennessee.

Kassidy Wynne died Monday afternoon, a day after she and her 12-year-old sister arrived in Carteret County to spend the summer with their father.

Deputies say Michael Wynne told them he was in his spare bedroom clearing a 20 gauge shotgun when the weapon fired. Wynne told 911 that he had accidentally shot his daughter.

Deputies say Wynne's older daughter was also in the room at the time of the shooting.

Deputies say they met with the family on Wednesday after they flew in from Maumelle, Arkansas. The 11-year-old lived there with her mother and
step-father.

Services for Kassidy will be in Knoxville, Tennessee where the family is originally from. The funeral will be Friday night at Gentry-Griffey Funeral Chapel located at 5301 Fountain Rd, in Knoxville. A graveside service will be held Saturday at Brook-Walter Cemetery in Knoxville.

Carteret County deputies say the case is still under investigation and no charges have been filed at this time.
