Mendoza boy kills younger brother
Tragedy hit Mendoza yesterday as an 11-year-old boy grabbed a firearm from his home and killed his 6-year-old brother and severely injured his 7-month-old sister in the Greater Mendoza City district of Las Heras. His mother had left the house to pick up another brother from school and four children were left at home, news agencies reported. The father was also at work. According to the neighbours, the 11-year-old boy took a gun and shot one of his younger brothers straight into the heart and injured his baby sister, who is now at the intensive care unit of the Humberto Notti children’s hospital. The gun was a 9-millimetre Bersa. At press time it was still unknown if the gun was registered or how it got into the hands of the child.
