A little boy left alone in a car with his siblings was accidentally shot and killed when his brother found a loaded gun in his mother’s purse, WBIR reports.
The boy was sitting in the car with his three siblings outside a Verizon store in Crossville, Tennessee. The children’s mother and stepfather left them in the car when they went inside to pay a bill. One of the boys found the semi-automatic pistol in his mother’s purse and tried to unload it, WATE reports.
Instead, the gun went off and the bullet struck his 7-year-old brother in the head’. The child was airlifted to a nearby hospital but died of his injury, WBIR reports.
The incident occurred at about 3:15 p.m. local time.
“It’s never good to leave a gun around a kid, regardless of if it’s loaded or not,” one bystander said.
Police and child protective services are investigating the incident.

New video emerges of Trump blurting out anti-Semitic slurs
President Donald Trump this week said that the majority of American Jews were "disloyal" to Israel because they support the Democratic Party -- but that's far from the first time that the president has made controversial statements that deploy anti-Semitic tropes.
The Washington Post has obtained a video clip from 2011 that shows Trump boasting about how great one of his golf courses is before saying that "even these spoiled, rich Jewish guys, they can’t believe how good this [course] is."
The clip was originally aired on the Golf Channel for the show "Donald J. Trump's Fabulous World of Golf."
WATCH: Trump’s trade advisor goes live on Fox Business — and immediately gets blindsided by China’s retaliation
President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser got a rude welcome on the Fox Business Network on Friday morning as host Maria Bartiromo dropped a bomb on him and informed him that China had just smacked the U.S. with an unexpected round of tariffs.
Assistant to the President, and Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro -- called by some the president's economic Rasputin -- seemed genuinely stunned by the new $75 billion tariffs in retaliation for the president's trade war.
"We have breaking news, China is announcing new tariff rates to apply and as a result, this market has completely reversed course," Bartiromo stated while displaying a ticker showing the stock market plunging.
Trump aide Cuccinelli snaps after CNN’s Camerota shows him pictures of caged kids: ‘I’m not going to take that’
A CNN interview with acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ken Cuccinelli took a contentious turn on Friday morning after host Alisyn Camerota showed him pictures of immigrant children being held in cages and asked him why he would want to hold them even longer based upon a recent policy change he instituted.
As the CNN host pressed the Trump administration official on plans to hold children indefinitely, she put pictures of the kids in cages up on the screen which angered Cuccinelli.
"On one level it protects children, but it also exposes children to the overcrowding. Here's some of the roll we've been playing for months," she began, only to have the White House official cut her off.
