Boy, 9, shoots 13-year-old sister dead after she refused to give him video game

A 13-year-old girl has been killed by her 9-year-old brother following a fight over a computer game controller.

He allegedly shot her from behind and the bullet entered her brain.

A local sheriff said it was unclear how the boy obtained the gun. It is also unclear what consequences the young boy will face. Police say the boy grabbed a .25 calibre handgun at about 1pm on Saturday when his sister would not give him the controller. He then shot her from behind and the bullet entered her brain.

The children’s mother was in another room feeding other children lunch at the time of the incident, authorities said.

“He’s just nine,” said Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell.

“I assume he’s seen this on video games or TV. I don’t know if he knew exactly what this would do. I do know it’s a tragedy.”
