Los Angeles: A two-month-old infant was shot when her juvenile uncle negligently fired a gun Monday.

On June 25, 2007, around 5:30 p.m., the young man was sitting on his porch fumbling with a pellet rifle. His sister, who was carrying his two-month old niece, walked toward him when the pellet gun discharged and struck the baby. Two-month-old Melody Rojas died from her injuries at 3:55 a.m. today.

The suspect was taken into custody and booked into Eastlake Juvenile Hall for murder. The pellet rifle was recovered from the family residence located in the 100 block of East 31st Street in Los Angeles.
