PHILADELPHIA — A 12-year-old boy has been charged with involuntary manslaughter after a 5-year-old cousin accidentally shot and killed the preteen’s 9-year-old sister in Philadelphia, authorities said.
Investigators later arrested Davis’ 12-year-old brother, saying he gave the gun to the younger boy, according to WPVI. Authorities have not released the preteen’s name because he was charged as a minor, the news outlets reported.
Davis’ father, Blake Davis, 39, also faces charges of involuntary manslaughter, endangering child welfare, reckless endangerment and corrupting minors, as well as weapons violations, WPVI reported.
