ABERDEEN, Miss. It is being reported that a 9 year old boy has fatally shot his 14 year old sister in Monroe County on Saturday.
“He went over and got a gun out and come up behind her and shot her,” said Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell.
Police say that the shooting was triggered when the victim, Dijonae White, did not let her younger brother have the video game controller. Police say the shooting took place while the two children were playing video games. According to the sheriff, the firearm belonged to the mother’s husband and she along with two other children were in the house at the time of the shooting.
It is unclear at this time whether any adults will be charged in relation to the shooting.
