Authorities have released the identity of the 10-year-old girl that was killed in an apparent drive-by shooting in Vineland on the 4th of July.

Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae says the child is Jasayde Holder, who had just finished 4th grade at Dane Barse School. Her family says she was creative with a love for music and riding her bike.

Authorities say at around 11:15 on the night of the 4th of July, Vineland Police were dispatched to Inspira Medical Center in the city after a child who was shot at a home in the 700 block of West Earl Drive died from her injuries.

Webb-McRae says investigators believe it was a drive-by shooting and they are trying to determine who was the intended target.
