Girl, 5, Shot, Killed By Another 5-Year-Old

CHUBBUCK, Idaho (July 31, 2014) A 5-year-old girl is dead after police say another 5-year-old accidentally shot her at a home in Chubbuck, Idaho.

Officers and first responders were sent to the home at around 3 p.m. Wednesday, Lt. Bill Guiberson of the Chubbuck Police Department said.

The girl was taken to Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello where she later died.

In a statement Thursday, police said adults were in the home at the time of the shooting but were in a different room.

It's unclear whether the victim lived at the residence.

The statement said only that she was there "visiting with friends" when the shooting happened.

Investigators have not released the type of gun involved or said how the children got access to it.

Further details weren’t available Thursday.
