Titania Mitchell

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Funeral services for a 13-year-old girl who was accidentally shot and killed inside her godmother's Northside home last Saturday have been announced.

The viewing for Titania Mitchell will be held April 26 at the Church of God Sanctuary Praise located on Soutel Drive. It's from 4-8 p.m.

The funeral is scheduled for the following day at the same location. The time has not yet been announced.

Officers say the teen was inside the home with four other children when her 11-year-old friend found a gun and accidentally fired it.

No adults were home at the time.

Officers arrested two people in the case -- the homeowner and the homeowner's boyfriend, who owned the gun.
