Father toying with gun fatally shoots 4-year-old in face
The Philadelphia father or stepfather turned himself in Saturday night.
Police initially thought that the girl was shot by her 5-year-old sibling as the father or stepfather was not at the scene after the incident. Authorities said that the man eventually turned himself in Saturday night and admitted it was he that shot the girl, according to CBS 3 News.
“After an investigation, (he) admitted to accidentally shooting the victim, and stated that the sibling had nothing to do with it,” Sgt. Eric Gripp said Sunday.
