On Tuesday, the local police said a four-year-old Pennsylvania girl was accidentally shot dead by her toddler brother outside a Philadelphia-area convenience store.
The police said the deadly shooting occurred before 11 a.m. while the victim’s family’s car was parked outside a convenience store they frequent in Chester, about 19 miles southwest of Philadelphia.
In the initial police investigation, the two-year-old suspect got hold of a gun and accidentally shot his younger sister while their car was parked at a gas pump.
The victim was immediately rushed to nearby Crozer-Chester Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
A deeper investigation into the deadly accidental shooting is now underway.
