Gilbert Police: 3-year-old girl dead after being left in hot car for two to three hours

Gilbert Police say a 3-year-old girl has died after being left in a hot car.

Police and Gilbert Fire responded to a neighborhood near Elliott and Higley Roads where a child was left in a car for two to three hours. The girl was transported to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

Gilbert Police say the matter is under investigation and it's too early to say whether any charges will be filed.

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for Wednesday, with temperatures almost reaching 112 degrees.

On Tuesday night, more than 100 people tied pink bows on trees in Gilbert in honor of the victim.
