Nine-year-old boy kills teenage sister over video game in US

Boy, 9, kills sister after shooting her in the head in argument over video game controller

Sheriff Cantrell tells WCBI this is an ongoing investigation, and the department is working and talking with the District Attorney's Office about what they are going to do in this case.

The boy grabbed a handgun, which was kept in a nightstand next to the bed, and shot the sister in the back of the head, the sheriff said.

She was rushed to Le Bonheur's Children's Hospital, later succumbing to her injuries. The circumstances are still being investigated.

It also remained unclear whether the children's parents would face any consequences. "I don't know if he knew exactly what this would do". It is not yet known how the boy gained access to a gun. I can't answer that.

The victim has been named locally as Dijonae White who was a student at Tupelo Middle School. It's now unknown whether or not the boy is in custody nor what charges he may face, but Cantrell has told CNN that the Sheriff's office is now in talks with the district attorney. We want to make sure we're doing everything correctly. "I do know it's a tragedy".

"This is the first time I've ever dealt with any child that was shot like that", Cantrell said.

Welcome to a courageous new America.... Just recently, White House representatives met with members of the video game industry to discuss gun violence.
