MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Police say a second child wounded in a double shooting in Memphis on Monday has died.

Memphis police tweeted Wednesday that 16-year-old Lequan Boyd was pronounced dead hours after 6-year-old Ashlynn Luckett. Both were shot in the same location Monday and brought to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in critical condition.

The drive-by shooting came just one day after another child was shot in Memphis. Ten-year-old Jaden Knox was shot Sunday night and police announced Monday morning that he had died from his wounds.

No arrests have been made in either case.
