An 11-year-old boy has been charged with murder after he allegedly shot dead his eight-year-old neighbour over a puppy.

McKayla Dyer died on Sunday after she was shot in the chest outside her home in Tennessee, police said.

The girl's mother told WATE-TV her daughter had refused the boy's request to play with her puppy before he shot her.

Jefferson County Sheriff Bud McCoig said the boy, whose name is not being released because of his age, used his father's 12-gauge shotgun to kill the girl.

She was pronounced dead at hospital.

Latasha Dyer described her daughter as "a precious little girl".

"No matter how bad of a mood you were in she could always make you smile," she told WATE-TV.

The boy's family has not commented on the shooting.

Both children attended the same elementary school, Sheriff McCoig said.
