13-Year-Old Accidentally Shoots Another 13-Year-Old In Las Vegas

Las Vegas police said a teenager died in a local hospital after being shot Tuesday afternoon at a home, according to TV station KVVU

Metro police spokesman Sgt. John Sheahan told the Las Vegas Sun that the shooting involved two 13-year-olds; KVVU reported that there were three juveniles inside the home when the teen was shot. It’s not clear if adults were present at the time of the shooting.

Police said the shooting appeared to be an accident. 

Metro’s Sgt. Annette Darr told KVVU, “Guns should be kept under lock and key at all times. Gun safes are the best bet so children don’t have easy access to firearms.”
