Police originally charged the girl with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury after the incident at a home on Perry Circle in Burlington.

WFMY reported Brown was airlifted to UNC Chapel Hill Hospital for treatment.

But in a statement, police say the charge was upgraded after Brown died from his injuries Sunday morning at the hospital.

The TV station reported that Deyanni Alleetta King is being held on $100,000 bond.

Authorities have not said what led to the shooting or how King and Brown might have known each other.
