Two brothers, ages 13 and 15, found an unsecured gun in their home in Minnesota on Sunday. As the boys were playing "Cops & Robbers," the older brother fired the weapon, shooting the other in the chest.
The younger brother later died of his injuries. During questioning, the police learned that both siblings had just recently learned their father had a gun and kept it in the home.
The 9 millimeter pistol was found unloaded but the ammunition was kept nearby and the boys were able to load the weapon.
