6-year-old girl shot by brother
OAKLAND PARK, Fla. (WSVN) -- Officials are on the scene after a 6-year-old girl was shot by her brother, Saturday.
The incident occurred in the area of 5921 NE Second Terrace in Oakland Park.
According to the Broward Sheriff's Office, a 13-year-old boy shot his 6-year-old sister. The children were left home without any adult supervision.
Justin Latoutrrette went outside and saw paramedics carrying the girl. "They just carried her out in her hands, and you can tell above her chest area she had a hole where she was shot," said Latoutrrette.
Detectives are interviewing the 13-year-old boy at this time. "We just don't know at this point if this was an accident or if it was intentional," said Broward Sheriff's Office spokesperson Dani Moschella.
The child was transported to Broward Health Medical Center in critical but stable condition.
Neighbors said the family had moved into the neighborhood few weeks ago.
