LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 2-year-old girl has died after being shot in the head during a home invasion in Lexington Monday night.

According to a news release from the Fayette County Coroner, 2-year-old Nova Marie Gallman was pronounced dead just before 4:30 a.m. at the UK Medical Center in Lexington. 

WKYT reports that the child, the child's mother, and her boyfriend were inside the home on Kenton Street Monday night when two people that the boyfriend reportedly knew forced their way into the home, and fired shots.

Several shots hit the boyfriend, and Gallman was shot in the head. 

Police Lt. Jeremy Tuttle told media that the man, who is the woman's boyfriend, was in stable condition at UK Medical Center. Police say they arrested the suspects at a hospital where both had sought treatment for wounds suffered during the gunfire.
