MONROE COUNTY, Mississippi – Investigators say a 9-year-old boy has shot and killed his 13-year-old sister during an argument over a video game controller.
According to Sheriff Cecil Cantrell, the girl Dijonae White, wouldn’t give up the video game controller when her brother wanted it on Saturday.
The enraged little boy allegedly grabbed a gun and shot his sister in the back of the head, with the bullet entering her brain.
Their mother, Chalandra White, was in another room at the home feeding lunch to other children when it happened.
Dijonae was rushed to Le Bonheur’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where she died Sunday night.
Sherrif Cantrell added that he isn’t sure what consequences the brother face will face.
‘He’s just nine. I assume he’s seen this on video games or TV,’ Sheriff Cantrell said.

‘In my opinion, kids watch video games where they shoot each other and hit the reset button and they come back to life. It’s not like that in the real world.
‘I don’t know if he knew exactly what this would do. I can’t answer that. I do know it’s a tragedy.’
