4-year-old girl shot by 9-year-old brother

A four-year-old Saudi girl was admitted in a serious condition to the intensive care unit at a hospital in the Gulf Kingdom after she was shot by her nine-year-old brother, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

The boy who was playing with his father’s gun aimed the weapon at his sister and pulled the trigger, ‘Okaz’ said.

“The girl is still in the intensive care unit and police are investigating the incident,” the paper said in a report from the northeastern town of Hafr Al Batin.

It did not make clear whether the boy meant to shoot his sister or it was an accident.
