BURKESVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A southern Kentucky coroner says the mother of a 5-year-old boy who fatally shot his 2-year-old sister had just stepped away onto the porch when the shooting occurred. Cumberland County Coroner Gary White tells WKYT-TV that the mother said she had been outside on a porch for “no more than three minutes.” Kentucky State Police say the girl was shot Tuesday afternoon. White told the Lexington Herald-Leader the boy received the .22-caliber rifle as a gift and is used to shooting it. He said the rifle was kept in a corner and the family didn’t realize a shell was left inside it. Published in The Messenger 5.1.13
