(Memphis) A 13-year-old boy shot his 10-year-old sister Monday.
The girl is in extremely critical condition at Le Bonheur.
People who live near the kids say they were home alone, and this isn’t the first time the 13-year-old fired a gun from his home.
“The same kid shot my window out,” said Dennis Wooders.
He said the boy admitted he fired the gun, hitting windows and cars of others in the neighborhood.
Wooders said the boy’s mother is a single parent and has tried to control him without luck.
“It’s just hard-headed kids, won’t do nothing she say,” Wooders said.
Monday’s shooting happened a little before 1 p.m. at 4092 Orleans Road, in Whitehaven.
MPD says they don’t yet know how the boy got the gun and that paramedics didn’t even realize the girl had a gunshot wound until she got to the hospital.
The teen is charged with felony reckless endangerment and unlawful possession of a weapon.
