Detroit-Police say this latest shooting death could have been prevented. Three cousins, all under the age of 5, were playing alone in a back bedroom with what police describe as a long gun.
It ended with a 4-year-old boy shot in the chest by his 4-year-old girl cousin.

“It is very tragic. The 4-year-old was transported to Henry Ford Hospital where he was pronounced dead at arrival,” said Detroit Police Cpt. Rodney Cox. There was an adult at the home at the time of the shooting. Police say it’s too early to say if anyone will face charges. No one is in custody.
