SO SAD: Philadelphia girl, 11, shot and killed by 2-year-old brother

It was a day that started out like any other day in a Philadelphia home, until things took a quick turn for the worse.

Somehow, according to the Associated Press, police believe a 2-year-old got hold of a loaded gun in a bedroom and fired the shot that killed an 11-year-old sister.

Police say the fatal bullet struck the girl's shoulder and then traveled to her chest.

Lt. John Walker explains that the mother was inside the house on Saturday morning with four children together in a master bedroom. But she left the room somewhere around 10 in the morning, which, police say, is when the shooting occurred.

Tragic.

So then, how in the world did a 2-year-old get a gun?

Reports say police believe a male friend had brought the firearm to the house that day.

While attempts were made to save the innocent victim’s life, they were unsuccessful. Authorities say the girl was rushed to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, but died a short time later.

In a relevant but unrelated report, NBC says about 500 American children and teenagers die in hospitals every year after sustaining gunshot wounds — a rate that climbed by nearly 60 percent in a decade.

An estimated 7,500 kids are hospitalized annually after being wounded by gunfire, a figure that spiked by more than 80 percent from 1997 to 2009, according two Boston doctors presenting their findings at a conference of the American Academy of Pediatrics, held in Orlando, Fla.

Prosecutors are currently investigating to determine if any charges will be filed.

Heartbreaking story.
