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.Читайте также: Memorial service planned Missouri boating accident victims
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.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
