WATERLOO (KWWL) - A 4-year-old injured over the weekend at her Waterloo home was taken off of life support Wednesday morning and died Wednesday afternoon, according to her family and a Go Fund Me page set up to support her.

Gracie Buss, 4, was taken off of life support at 11 a.m. Wednesday, her family told KWWL.

The Go Fund Me page that had been collecting donations for medical expenses was renamed to collect for funeral expenses, with an update that Gracie died just before 1 p.m. Wednesday.

The girl had sustained injuries from an incident Saturday morning.

Family members tell KWWL they believe the injuries were "intentional." Waterloo Police would not confirm that information Wednesday, but said they were investigating.
