PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A 22-year-old man has been arrested and charged with murder in the shooting death of a 3-year-old girl who was sitting on a front porch when an argument broke out, police said Saturday.


Douglas Woods, of Philadelphia, has been charged with murder, three counts of attempted murder, aggravated assault and other charges, according to Officer Tanya Little.


Three-year-old Tynirah Borum was shot in the chest by a stray bullet while getting her hair braided at about 9:40 p.m. Friday in the Grays Ferry section of the city, according to police. Officers put her in their patrol car and rushed her to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead less than an hour later.


Three adults were injured, one critically.


Stray bullets hit Tynirah, a 28-year-old female bystander shot in the left arm and a 21-year-old male bystander shot in the right leg.
