A nine years old boy from Mississippi shot his own sister in the head, who was four years older than him, because she refused to give him the gaming console.
According to authorities from Mississippi, the girl was shot from behind with a pistol and the bullet perforated her brain. She was taken immediately to the hospital but the girl unfortunately lost her life. The tragedy took place on Saturday.
The local police is currently investigating how the boy managed to get his hands on the pistol and how he learned to use it.
“It is a very serious matter. I don’t know if he realized what he was doing but I know it’s a tragedy” the Chief of Police of Monroe, Mississippi, said.
One of the working theories is that the boy learned to use the weapon from video games.
