For the second time in less than a week a Memphis child was was killed by gunfire.

13-year-old Melissa Robinson died around 3:00 AM Tuesday after spending the night on life support, said officials at the MED.

The Binghampton girl was struck in the head by a bullet fired at a crowded park Monday, police said. Investigators said the victim was involved in a fight earlier with a group of teens, one of whom returned with the gun and opened fire.

"It's very upsetting. It's pitiful. It's sad. It's ridiculous. Somebody needs to put a stop to it for real," said neighbor Lakeisha Adair.

Robinson's family called for the community to come together to stop the violence. Stepfather Allen Hamer said it doesn't matter how many police officers are in the neighborhood, it's up to citizens to get more involved.
