Monroe County Girl ‘Executed’ in Video Games Style
The Monroe County, law enforcement officials, are currently investigating the shooting death of a 13-year-old girl. According to the authorities, the events started to unfold on Saturday evening, when the girl and her nine-year-old brother had a rather heated dispute about whose turn it is to play on the console.
Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told the reporters that the 13-year-old girl was playing video games on the console all day, with her brother throwing a fit next to her.
Reportedly, at one point, the nine-year-old went to his sister and ordered her to give him the console controller. The girl refused, and the two of them argued for some time.
Cantrell declared that the irked boy left the room and later returned with a .25-mm handgun. He crept up on his sister, placed the barrel of the gun at the back of her head and fired one shot.
The parents called the authorities who rushed the 13-year-old girl in critical condition at the Le Bonheur’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis.
Emergency surgery and life-saving maneuvers failed, and the girl was declared dead on Sunday, at 6:45 p.m. According to the ER doctors, the 13-year-old had minimal chances of survival, as the bullet went straight through her brain.
When asked about charges, Cantrell said that the case is being under scrutiny and will not be expedited. The Monroe County Sherriff added that the video games murder by minor is the first case of this kind in Monroe County.
