An Ohio boy found a loaded handgun he thought was a BB gun and used it to shoot and kill his 8-year-old brother.

…the boys were visiting their uncle on Saturday when the shooting occurred. “We walked in through the front door here that’s in to the kitchen area and the child was laying on his back with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was conscious and alert at that time,” Cincinnati police Sgt. Jim Perkins told WXIX.

The gunshot victim died shortly after being rushed to a nearby hospital. Lt. Don Luck recalled that one sibling “kept telling the story of how it happened, over and over again.”

“It’s so sad,” Luck said.
