May 19, 2014 11:39 a.m.

A Texas 6-year-old girl died on Sunday after she was accidentally shot in a San Antonio, Texas home, KENS News reported.

The girl was shot in the face when a loaded handgun went off, investigators told KENS. She was taken to a local hospital, where she later died.

Police told KENS that they believe the 6-year-old was the only person in the room at the time. However, investigators are testing her 8-year-old sister for gun residue, since she may have been in the room as well.

Investigators did not say whether the girl’s parents would be charged, according to KENS.
