3 year old Missouri girl killed in accidental shooting

A 3 year old girl was shot in an accidental shooting in Missouri. From an article:
A coroner has ruled the shooting death of a 3-year-old Joplin girl was an accident.
Newton County coroner Mark Bridges says Miranda Doerr was shot by someone Monday at her home east of Joplin.
Her 6-year-old brother was in the room with her but Bridges told the Joplin Globe that he can’t say definitively who shot the girl. He says he can only rule that she did not shoot herself.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
