A 3-year-old girl fatally shot her 4-year-old sister with an unsecured firearm in Texas late on Sunday, March 12, according to a conference with Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. The sheriff said the two children were left unsupervised and then picked up the loaded semi-automatic pistol.
Gonzalez said the girls were in the bedroom of an apartment complex in Houston, where they lived with their parents. The sheriff said five adults were also in the apartment at the time. All of the adults were family members or family friends of the girls.
