    The owners of a Lubbock day care say staff members have been fired after a video circulated on social media showing a person pulling a child's hair at the facility.

    Lubbock police say officers went to the day care after investigators were made aware of the video on Thursday. Detectives have referred the case to the city's prosecutor.

    Investigators determined the video was recorded on Dec. 26, but that the child's parents and the owners of the day care weren't aware of the video until Thursday.

    The owners and directors of My Little Playhouse Learning Center released a statement saying that after learning of the video, the "staff involved were fired immediately."
