Girl, 2, shot, killed by boy, 5
BURKESVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Authorities in southern Kentucky say a 2-year-old girl has been accidentally shot and killed by her 5-year-old brother, who was playing with a .22-caliber rifle he received as a gift.
Cumberland County Coroner Gary White told the Lexington Herald-Leader that the children's mother was at home at the time. White said that the boy received the rifle last year. He said the gun was kept in a corner and the family didn't realize a shell was left inside it.
