A city teenager is facing several charges, including attempted murder, in connection with the accidental shooting of an 8-year-old girl in Brooklyn.

Police say 16-year-old Tajay Richards opened fire after an argument near East 83rd Street and Flatlands Avenue in Canarsie last week.

Investigators say the shot grazed the little girl in the head while she was sitting in a van.  

She was taken to the hospital and is expected to recover.
