Little girl McKayla's mother Latasha Dyer say they had problems by the boy when they came to that area. The boy used to make fun of her by calling her names.
Dyer told to local television 'He was making fun of her, calling her names, just being mean to her. I had to go to the principal about him and he quit for a while and then all of a sudden yesterday he shot her.'
'She was a precious little girl. She was mommy's girl. No matter how bad of a mood you were in, she could always make you smile.'
'I want her back in my arms, this is not fair. Hold and kiss your babies every night because you're never promised the next day with them. I hope the little boy learned his lesson because he took my baby's life -- and I can't get her back.' she said.
Both the boy and girl were studying in the same school at White Pine elementary school. The boy is studying 5th grade while the victim girl was in 3rd grade.
