A 2-year-old girl was accidentally fatally shot by a 4-year-old boy Friday morning in the San Bernardino County in the western US state of California, said police.

The shooting happened around 9 a.m.at a home in Duffy Street in San Bernardino's Muscoy area on Friday, the sheriff's office told the media.

- A tragic sequence of events took the life of a toddler after a little boy got hold of a loaded gun and shot his 2-year-old cousin.

The girl died about an hour after being hospitalized.

"At this point they believe that a 4-year-old child got a hold of a handgun and shot, accidentally shot, the 2-year-old child", said Cindy Bachman with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. The girl's mother could be seen distraught at the scene of the incident, neighbors said, while the 4-year-old boy who had killed his cousin accidentally could also be seen visibly shocked. "They were pumping it as they put her in the ambulance", said neighbor Bubba McBath.

The two children lived in the same house and were identified by the Sheriff's Department as cousins.

Deputies responded to a report of a shooting at the home Friday morning.

"That was her only daughter".

After several interviews, investigators determined Cesar Lopez, the victim's grandfather, had left the gun in a place accessible to kids. "She was a good mom", neighbor Citlaoy Plascencia told NBC.

Bachman says adults were home at the time of the accident.
