St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Major Ginny Higgins says a little boy from Arnaudville who was shot Thursday evening has died.

Deputies were called out to a home in the 1000 block of Kennedy Drive after there was a report about a shooting.

Higgins says the 3-year-old boy was flown to a hospital, and he died just after 10 o'clock yesterday evening.

The Sheriff's Office has not released any further details about who owned the gun, how the child got the gun or the identify of the child.
