3-year-old dies in shooting

COLLINS — The Covington County coroner says a 3-year-old girl was shot to death allegedly by her 4-year-old brother.

Coroner Chris DaQuila tells the Hattiesburg American that the children were playing in a back bedroom and the grandparents were in another part of the house Sunday evening when they heard a gun go off.

When the adults reached the room, DaQuila said they found Cameron Sellers laying on the floor with a 12-gauge shotgun beside her. Her brother was standing off to the side of the girl.

Authorities are still investigating the shooting.

DaQuila said Sellers died of a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
