A 3-year-old girl accidentally shot and killed her one-year-old sister in Texas on Sunday, police said. The 3-year-old escaped adult control and “got access to a semi-automatic pistol, loaded. Family members heard a gunshot. They rushed into the room and found the 4-year-old girl, on the floor, unresponsive”explains Ed Gonzalez, the sheriff of Harris County, in the suburbs of Houston.
The death of the young victim was pronounced on the spot. “This appears to be a tragic new story where a child gained access to a gun and hit someone else”deplored the police.
