A distraught 5 year old boy told authorities that he found a gun whilst playing with his older brother in the woods near their home as they played thinking it was a toy, which accidentally resulted in his 12 year old brother being shot dead in the chest.

The Police Department in Griffin Georgia is continuing their investigation. One of their neighbours Tom Whitehead who owns the body shop opposite the family’s home stated that he saw the children playing peacefully in the back garden on their trampoline. He continued explaining that the little one found a gun and said “bang bang” to his brother as they were playing & the gun went off. The gun had been discarded whilst still being loaded. They rushed the brother that was shot to hospital but he died from his injuries.

Police are linking the abandoned gun to an incident earlier in the day in the area as Officers attempted a traffic stop, but three men got away. The area was searched after the men fled and a bag containing MDMA was found. No weapons were located at the time.

A Griffin police spokesperson told CNN they anticipate charges against those who discarded the gun and left it where young children were able to find it.
