MCKINNEY, Texas (AP) -- Police in the Dallas suburb of McKinney have arrested a woman for the fatal shooting of a 7-year-old in North Texas.

Authorities say Brooke Craig was named in a capital murder warrant from Greenville, about 30 miles (48.28 kilometers) to the east, and led police on a car chase early Friday after she was spotted leaving a drug store. The chase ended in nearby Frisco on a dead-end street.

The arrest warrant is related to Greenville police being summoned to a home late Thursday afternoon after receiving a call about a disturbance. At the same time, they were told a 7-year-old gunshot victim had been brought to the Hunt Regional Medical Center. The child died a short time later.

The relationship between Craig and the child hasn't been immediately disclosed.
