9-year-old boy shoots sister in fight over video game controller

Sheriff Boy shoots sister after argument over video game controller

A 13-year-old girl died at a hospital Sunday night after she was shot by her 9-year-old brother during an argument over a video game, according to reports.

Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told the media that it is their understanding that the boy got hold of the gun when the girl refused to relinquish the controller.

This case is under investigation, WTVA reported. He says the boy shot the girl in the back of the head and that the bullet entered her brain.

Authorities don't yet know how the child had access to the weapon they say he used to shoot his sister. "I don't know if he knew exactly what this would do". "He's just nine", Cantrell said, according to Clarion Ledger.
