New Jersey Teen Arrested For Murder Of Eight-Year Old

A New Jersey teen was charged Friday with murder in the shooting of an 8-year-old girl who was caught in the crossfire.

Camden resident Tyhan Brown, 18, was arrested Friday at his uncle's home in Clarksville, Tennessee, officials said.

Gabrielle 'Gabby' Hill Carter was hit in the head by a stray bullet while across the street from her home in August in Camden.

She was shot August 24 while riding a bicycle, Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson said, according to the Courier-Post.

Carter's mother, Meresa Carter-Phillips, told WPVI-TV that it was good that Brown was arrested 'but nothing is going to change the fact that my daughter is gone and I have a loss'.

'It was like a little relief off my back, but I still feel the same way, my daughter is not here anymore,' she said.
