BRIDGETON — A 10-year-old girl who was fatally shot Sunday in Vineland was identified Tuesday by the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office.

The victim was identified as Jasayde Holder, Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said in a news release.

Jasayde had just completed fourth grade at Dane Barse Elementary School in Vineland, Webb-McRae said. She was described by her family as creative. She loved music and riding her bike, Webb-McRae said.

Authorities said Vineland police were called shortly before 11:30 p.m. Sunday to Inspira Medical Center Vineland, where the girl was pronounced dead.
