FREDRICKSBURG, Ohio -- Police say a teenage girl driving a horse and buggy in an Amish area of northeast Ohio has been shot in the head and has died.
Holmes County Sheriff Timothy Zimmerly says 15-year-old Rachel Yoder died Friday, a day after her brother found her outside their home in Fredricksburg, in neighboring Wayne County.
WJW-TV reports she was Amish and had attended a Christmas party for employees of a produce shop.
Zimmerly says she dropped off a friend before being shot about 3 miles from home. He says she fell from the buggy when the horse arrived at the home.
Zimmerly tells Wooster's The Daily-Record newspaper a bullet was found in the girl's head but no bullet holes were in the buggy and no casings were nearby.
