Girl accidentally shoots, kills 2-year-old brother



Published: Tue, August 2, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



MONTGOMERY CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A 6-year-old girl playing with her father's gun accidentally shot and killed her 2-year-old brother at their home, authorities said.

Chase Yordt was killed Sunday morning. It was unclear where the girl found the handgun, Highway Patrol Sgt. Paul Reinsch said.

The bullet first hit the girl in the foot, Reinsch said.

The children's father, who has not been identified, is employed by the county jail, but the gun was not a county-issued weapon, said sheriff's Maj. Matt Schoo.

The case is being reviewed to determine whether any charges will be filed against the parents, Reinsch said.
