11-Year-Old Girl Shoots Her 14-Year-Old Sister With Shotgun While 'Playing CSI' In Logansport, Indiana

Posted: Updated:

Two sisters were "playing CSI" with a loaded 20-gauge shotgun when the game turned all too real, according to investigators in Logansport, Ind.

An 11-year-old girl shot her sister, 14, in the "head area" while mimicking the popular crime TV show just before 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Cass County conservation officer Brenda Louthain told the Logansport Pharos-Tribune.

The pellets reportedly passed through a door jamb before striking the teen, likely slowing their velocity, according to the paper.

The victim has been hospitalized, though her condition has not been released, 6News reports.

The shooting, which occurred when the children's parents were out of the house, is being described as accidental, according to the station.

Calls to the Cass County Sheriff's Office were not immediately returned.
