  • US Teen Allegedly Shot Dead By 9.Y.O Brother Over A Gaming Controller

Authorities in MS say a 9-year-old boy has shot his 13-year-old sister in the head and wounded her after an argument over a video game controller.

Cantrell added that the bullet penetrated the girl's brain and she was rushed to the Le Bonheur's Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

The sheriff says the boy went and grabbed a.25 caliber when his sister wouldn't give him the controller.

On Facebook members of the community voiced concerns about the availability of guns and the presence of video games, while others simply offered prayers for the girl and her family. How the brother got access to the gun and what kind of gun was used is yet to be discovered.
