KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A young girl is fighting for her life after being shot on a Kansas City playground. 

The victim, who is under the age of 10, was rushed to the hospital at around 7 p.m. on Sunday. 

That little girl remains hospitalized in critical condition tonight while Kansas City police try and piece together what happened that led to another child shooting her.

Neighbors who live in the area tell KCTV5 the little girl was handing out gum when something occurred that upset a young boy, who was also under the age of 10. 

Police are still investigating where and how the child got the gun.
