A New York City girl was charged last week after she accidentally shot her younger brother while playing with a loaded gun earlier this month.

The 13-year-old girl was reportedly visiting family with her 11-year-old brother and other children on April 8 when the shooting occurred.

As the children played in the hallway, the teen pulled out a gun and began showing it off, showing how she could hide it in the palm of her hand.
