A 7-year-old Tennessee girl was accidentally shot dead by her 2-year-old cousin this week.

The children were in the kitchen area when a shot was heard, police said in a statement.

The 14-year-old reportedly told cops that the 2-year-old was found holding a pistol.

Harmony was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead, according to the statement.

Police believe the aunt's 27-year-old friend, Anthony Sanders, was outside when the shot was fired.

Sanders allegedly "went inside the apartment to see what happened, and then ran from the area," according to their statement.
