Girl, 10, dies after being found unresponsive

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A 10-year-old girl died after being found unresponsive in her Northside home late Saturday night, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Police responded to a home on Devan Lee Drive around 11:30 p.m.


Family members told police they found the girl unresponsive in her bedroom.  She was taken to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
