11-Year-Old Girl 'Playing CSI' Shoots Sister In Head With Shotgun

NYDAILYNEWS.COM - An 11-year-old girl in Indiana accidentally shot her 14-year-old sister in the head with a shotgun while "playing CSI," authorities said Sunday.

The incident occurred Saturday morning while the two siblings were home alone, according to the Logansport Pharos-Tribune.

The older sibling survived and is hospitalized, but her condition was not released.

Authorities are still investigating exactly what happened, but told the newspaper they don't believe the shooting was intentional.

The sisters were in separate rooms when the shotgun fired, according to Cass County conservation officer Brenda Louthain, who investigated the shooting.

The pellets from the "20-gauge shotgun" passed through a door jam before striking the 14-year-old, she told the Logansport Pharos-Tribune. This likely caused the injuries to be less severe.

The 11-year-old told police she was mimicking the crime scene investigation TV series when the gun went off.

The names of the two girls were not released, and the incident is still under investigation.
