A 13-year-old woman in Mississippi has died after allegedly being shot by way of her nine-year-old brother over a online game, police say.
They mentioned the boy grabbed a gun on Saturday afternoon after his sister would no longer surrender the controller.
He allegedly shot her from at the back of, and the bullet entered her mind.
An area sheriff introduced on Sunday that the teenager had died of her accidents in a Memphis clinic. It was once unclear how the boy got the gun.
It could also be unclear what penalties the nine-year-old will face.
“I assume he’s seen this on video games or TV. I don’t know if he knew exactly what this would do. I can’t answer that. I do know it’s a tragedy.”
The kids’s mom was once in every other room, feeding different kids lunch on the time of the incident.
Police are nonetheless investigating the instances of the capturing, together with how the weapon – a .25 calibre handgun – was once accessed.
“This is all new ground for us, we’ve never dealt with a kid shooting a kid at age nine,” Sheriff Cantrell informed native press.
