Philadelphia • A 2-year-old boy apparently shot and killed his 11-year-old sister while they and their siblings played with a gun inside a Philadelphia home, police said Sunday.
Jamara Stevens was fatally shot Saturday morning with a gun that police believe was brought into the home by the mother's boyfriend a few hours earlier.
The mother was home with her four children in a master bedroom, Lt. John Walker said. Police say the shooting occurred when she left the room at about 10 a.m. to use the bathroom.
The 2-year-old pointed the loaded, cocked gun in the direction of his sister and the gun discharged, according to investigators.
