Teen Accidentally Kills Brother, Teen accidentally kills brother: 12-year-old boy dies in second Orlando shooting, A teen accidentally kills his brother is topping national headlines this weekend, as Fox WOGX News reported this Friday, March 22, that a 12-year-old Orlando, Fla. boy is dead after his 16-year-old brother accidentally shot him with a gun.

Under the headline, “Teen accidentally kills brother, police say”, the Orlando Sentinel adds that although the boy was quickly taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital, he was unable to be revived and was pronounced dead from the gunshot wound.

Local officials have deemed that the brother’s shooting was an accident, and the older teen is not expected to face any charges in the boy’s death.

“Detectives will be meeting at a later date with the State Attorneys Office to discuss the case and decide if there is any negligence,” said Orlando Police Department spokesman Sgt. Jim Young. “The family is fully cooperating with the investigation; however, they are requesting privacy.”

Unfortunately, this is not the first time that gun violence in the Orlando area has tragically struck youth this week. Fox News added that a Pine Hills boy, only four years old, is still in critical condition after he found a loaded gun and shot himself in the head this Wednesday morning.
