Orlando, Florida -- A 10-year-old Florida girl who fatally shot a neighbor her mother was fighting with had been handed a purse with a loaded gun by her own mom, officials said.

The child's mother, identified as 31-year-old Lakrisha Isaac, was arrested after the unidentified minor fatally shot 41-year-old Lashun Rodgers while the victim was grilling food outside her apartment unit in Orlando on Memorial Day.

Issac faces multiple charges, including manslaughter by culpable negligence, child neglect, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and aggravated assault with a firearm, according to the New York Post.

Neighbors who witnessed the incident said the altercation began at around 11:45 p.m. Monday when Isaac, who was allegedly drunk, walked up to Rodgers and slapped her. Rodgers slapped her back, and the two women began fighting.

At one point during the altercation, Isaac gave her daughter a handbag that contained a loaded firearm. The 10-year-old pulled the weapon out of the purse and fired two rounds at Rodgers, cops said, as per the outlet.

Rodgers was rushed to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead.

The child was turned over to the Florida Department of Children and Families, where she will remain until the state attorney's office decides whether she will face charges.

Isaac, on the other hand, remained in jail without bond until Wednesday. She was then produced in court for a hearing, according to reports.

Meanwhile, Rodgers, who was a beloved mother and grandmother, was fondly remembered by family and friends as a "giving, loving" person. "She will give you the shoes and the shirt off her back, literally. I've seen her do it," the victim's best friend, Stacey Johnson, told WIFR. "And she kept you laughing. Her humor… Oh my God, her spirit was awesome."

Rodger's cousin, Amber Dozier, said it was tragic that her cousin lost her life to a "senseless situation." "She didn't deserve it at all. She's not that type of person, and she doesn't get in this type of stuff," Click Orlando quoted her as saying.
