A two-year-old boy shot dead his 11-month-old brother in Alabama's port city Mobile, United States on Monday. The childrens' parents told police that their two-year-old son found their gun in the bedroom and shot the infant. The victim was taken to the Providence Hospital but declared dead after a while.
The mother was about to leave the house when the incident occurred.
"Mother had gone out back to let her know that she was getting ready to leave the residence when we believe the two-year-old came out and told his grandmother that his ears were ringing," Lawrence Battiste, Mobile police chief, said.
The police chief said that a 9mm handgun was used that had been kept in the parents' bedroom.
The infant, whose age was initially reported as one-year-old, was shot in the back by his brother, he added.
