CROZET, Va. (AP) -- Albemarle County authorities are refusing to provide details about a shooting in which they say a juvenile fatally shot a 10-year-old girl, but church officials say the victim is the daughter of a Crozet pastor.

The Virginia Church of God says the girl is the daughter of Paul and Anne Hollifield. Paul Hollifield is the pastor of Victory Hill Church of God in Crozet.

Albemarle County Police spokeswoman Carter Johnson says the investigation is ongoing and the department is unable to release more information on the shooting, including the age of the male or whether he was related to the girl.

The girl died at the scene of Tuesday morning's shooting.
