8-year old girl shot by 12-year old brother unloading rifle

From the article about a shooting in Alice, Texas:

Alice police are investigating what they call an "accidental" shooting.

Detectives say it happened on Hobbs Street Saturday afternoon.

Officers say a 12-year old boy was unloading a rifle when it went off and struck an 8-year old girl in the abdomen.

Halo Flight rushed her to the hospital.

We're told her injuries are severe but not life threatening.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
