Authorities in Cleveland, Tenn., have released the name of a three-year-old girl who died Wednesday from a gunshot wound to the head.

Kydalynn Robinson lived at the house in the Benwood subdivision off Old Parksville Road in Bradley County, according to the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.

Spokesman Bob Gault said a Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper and his wife, their two daughters and a child of each daughter, including the victim, lived in the home.

Dalya Qualls, a spokewoman for the THP, this morning identified the trooper as Tommie Graham.

Gault said forensic evidence was collected and photos taken at the scene Wednesday. The investigation is ongoing, he said.
