CONWAY, Ark. (AP) — Three Arkansas girls have been arrested on child endangerment charges after a mother says she saw Snapchat videos of them using a stun gun near her 1-year-old daughter.

An arrest report Monday says the girls recorded the crying child while they zapped the stun gun in her direction in Conway, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Little Rock.

The report says the girls, whose names and ages have not been released, did not use the stun gun on the baby.

The report says one video shows one girl hitting the baby in the back of her head causing her to cry. It is not clear what was used to strike the child. The video also shows laughing emojis and the comment "She a bully, but I'm dying" as the girls laugh.

It wasn't immediately clear if the girls have attorneys.
