After being shot, the 9-year-old Florida girl ran into her sleeping mother's room and yelled, "He shot me!"

Two other people, including a TV reporter, were also slain in the shooting spree.

According to a new affidavit, T'yonna Major was shot twice in the torso by 19-year-old Keith Moses, who entered the Harrington Drive house in Pine Hills near Orlando through an unlocked rear door on Feb. 22 at around 4 p.m.

When T'yonna screamed, her mother, Brandi Major, was startled out of her nap. According to the document, she felt a bullet strike her shoulder and heard two gunshots shortly after.

The two ran to the bathroom, where Major called 911. T'yonna was able to give responding officers a description of the shooter by stating that he had dreadlocks, reports New York Post.

The girl died after being taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital.

Detective Brian Savelli of the Orange County Sheriff's Office wrote in the affidavit that Major had told the tragic girl to get her "dance items" ready when her dad arrived.

Police had already identified Moses as the suspect in the shooting death of his acquaintance Nathacha Augustin, 38, four hours earlier.

According to the affidavit, she was found lying close to a car that Moses' cousin had been driving.

Authorities had earlier claimed that Augustin and the cousin had offered Moses a ride. He reportedly got in the car and sat behind the woman before starting to shoot.

Moses then attacked a Spectrum 13 news crew reporting the morning shooting after he had already targeted Major and her daughter.

According to the affidavit, photographer Jesse Walden was hurt and 24-year-old reporter Dylan Lyons was killed after being shot in the breast while riding in the front passenger seat of the station's Ford Escape.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of our colleague and the other lives senselessly taken today," Spectrum News said in a statement.

The Biden administration offered its condolences to the families of the two journalists following the news.

"Our hearts go out to the family of the journalist killed today and the crew member injured in Orange County, Florida, as well as the whole Spectrum News team," White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tweeted.

U.S. Sen. Rick Scott called the shooting "absolutely horrible."

"My team and I are closely monitoring the situation and keeping these Floridians and their families in our prayers," the Florida lawmaker said.

Police initially said the journalists were shot before Major and her daughter.

Police found a .40-caliber Glock handgun from Moses when they arrested him at 4:30 p.m.

As a "known gang member," Moses originally entered a plea of not guilty to a charge of first-degree murder in connection with Augustin's passing.

Authorities have not determined why the killings occurred.

It wasn't clear if Moses was related to the mother and child.
