The Atlanta Journal reports the shooting of a six-year-old Georgia girl by her very own 4-year-old brother at about 6 p.m. in a car parked in the driveway of a home in unincorporated Dallas.
Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ashley Henson says the family was in the car about to leave home when the car wouldn’t start, the mother got out to see what was wrong and somehow, the little boy found the handgun and it accidentally discharged.
His sister, identified as Millie Drew Kelly, was shot in the head. She was pronounced dead on Thursday.
Henson says detectives believe the gun was retrieved from the car’s center console, although no charges will be filed against the boy
