Monroe County Sheriff says a 13-year-old Aberdeen, MS., girl is dead after being allegedly shot in the back of the head by her 9-year old brother.

The boy shot his older sister because of an argument over a video game controller, confirmed Sheriff Cecil Cantrell.


Sheriff Cantrell says this is the “first of its kind” for him to work.

The sheriff says the boy went and grabbed a .25 caliber when his sister wouldn’t give him the controller. He says the brother shot the 13-year old in the back of the head and the bullet went into her brain. source

The teen was rushed to a hospital in Memphis, where she was pronounced dead Sunday evening.

The department is working and talking with the District Attorney’s Office about what they are going to do in this case.
