A three-year-old girl accidentally shot and killed her sister, 4, after finding a loaded semi-automatic pistol in their Houston apartment while their parents had friends over and left them unattended.
The accidental shooting happened in the family home on Sunday, March 12, at 8 pm local time in Houston, Texas.
The two girls were left unsupervised in a bedroom in the apartment as one parent thought the other was watching them, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.
There were also five adults – family members and friends – present in the apartment on Bammel North Houston Road, among which were the girls’ parents.
It is believed that the three-year-old found a loaded semi-automatic pistol and shot once, striking her four-year-old sister, the sheriff said.
