Greenville Woman Charged in Death of 7-year-old

While officers were investigating the disturbance, a 7-year-old was taken to the Hunt Regional Medical Center ER with a gunshot wound and later died.

Investigators believe that when Cameron Rafael Castillo, 24, arrived at a residence on 4211 Pickett, he engaged in a possible second disturbance with the suspect, identified as Brooke, Ashley Craig, 26. A 7-year-old boy was killed in the shooting.

A 7-year-old child is dead and two people are in custody in the aftermath of a shooting that took place Thursday afternoon in Greenville, KXAS-TV (NBC5) reported.

Authorities say she led police on a vehicle chase before her arrest.

Greenville police said Kaden Green died at a hospital after being taken there by a witness following the shooting Thursday afternoon. She was not related to the boy.

'As far as what happened and what transpired, no child should've been involved in that, ' said Evelyn Jose, Castillo's cousin.

Greenville police initially responded to the home on Pickett Street for a report of shots fired but found no one there. "No child should be gone today". Greenville police have accused the woman of shooting into a moving vehicle-driven by her boyfriend, Cameron Castillo-with three children inside. The couple fled and drove through several neighborhoods before ending up in a dead-end street in Frisco. The couple was finally arrested after Craig backed the auto into a police cruiser. When police arrived to a residence on Pickett Street, they found and empty house; they later learned that a 7-year old child had been rushed by auto to Hunt Regional Medical Center.

"I don't honestly think she should be allowed to keep that one after taking one", said Jose.

Craig was booked on a capital murder charge as well as evading arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia. When they attempted to approach her, she sped off, leading police into neighboring Frisco where she and her passenger were ultimately arrested.
