South Tucson police used a taser gun on a nine-year-old girl, and Pima County Sheriff's deputies are looking into why.

It happened May 8, after the girl ran away from a children's home.

We're told officers found her, but she was uncooperative. Sheriff's investigators say the officer handcuffed the girl, put her in the back of a police car and then tased her.

Deputies are offering no other details right now.
