Boy, 2, Accidentally Shoots and Kills 7-Year-Old Cousin: Cops
The little boy was found holding a pistol, cops say.
A 7-year-old Tennessee girl was accidentally shot dead by her 2-year-old cousin this week.
Harmony Warfield was killed Tuesday while in her apartment with four other relatives, her 29-year-old aunt, and children ages 14, 11 and 2, the Nashville Metropolitan Police Department said.
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.
The pistol has not been recovered and Sanders is now being sought for questioning to determine what he may know about the gun.
Anyone who has seen Sanders is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
