Officials say that a 12-year-old girl who investigators said plotted with a friend to kill their families and run away together has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office, the girl died Sept. 22 of a gunshot wound to the head.

The Parker County Sheriff’s Office said the girl and a friend in Lufkin both planned to kill their families and pets and then go together to Georgia but the other juvenile did not carry out her part of the plan.

On Sept. 20, the sheriff’s department said deputies arrived at the family’s home in northwest Parker County and found a young girl lying in the street with an apparent gunshot wound to the head. Inside the family’s home deputies found the girl’s 38-year-old father with a gunshot wound to his abdomen.
