Police say a 35-year-old Savannah woman is charged with aggravated assault after shooting and wounding her 11-year-old daughter as she slept in bed.
Mary Elizabeth Frazier is being held in the Chatham County jail. Her daughter, Diamond Frazier, is being treated at a local hospital.
Police say the girl is in critical but stable condition.
Savannah-Chatham County Police spokeswoman Judy Pal says investigators do not believe the shooting was an accident.
The mother and daughter were the only people in their home. Pal says police recovered a handgun inside the home.
