A 16-year-old girl was fatally shot in the head Sunday at a Far North Dallas party where several people were playing with a handgun, police said.
Witnesses reported one of the people had pointed the gun at Jakiyah Wrightsil before she was shot, Dallas police Senior Cpl. DeMarquis Black said.
Jakiyah was found dead on a floor at the Viridian Place apartments in the 4800 block of Haverwood Lane, near the Dallas North Tollway and President George Bush Turnpike.
It appeared a large party was ending when police responded about 4:30 a.m., and several juveniles and young adults were detained in the parking lot.
Several witnesses were taken to Dallas police headquarters to be interviewed but no one was taken into custody, Black said.
