Boy, 9, Kills older Sister Over Video Game


A nine-year-old native of Mississippi is presently in Police custody after he allegedly shot dead his older sister because the latter refused to give him the family’s video game controller.
The victim, 13-year-old Dijonae White was said to have died of complications from her injuries in Le Bonheur’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
The Police said following the victim’s refusal the boy grabbed a 25 calibre handgun at about 1pm on Saturday and shot White from behind, with the bullet entering her brain.
The source of the weapon still has not been established yet.
The child, meanwhile faces an uncertain fate.
The children’s mother was in another room feeding other children lunch at the time of the incident, authorities said.
“He’s just nine,” said Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell.
“I assume he’s seen this on video games or TV. I don’t know if he knew exactly what this would do. I do know it’s a tragedy.”
