Accidental Shooting In Sanford Area

Early Thursday evening Accomack County Sheriff's Department and Saxis, Va. EMS units were called to a residence in the Sanford area for gunshot to the chest.

Two children, brother and sister, living in the household had gone upstairs to play when the shooting occurred.

The brother of the 10 year old girl accidently shot his sister in the chest with a gun owned by the male occupant of the residence.

The female was transported by Saxis EMS unit to Pocomoke where EMS units transported the child to PRMC. The young girl has died from that accidental shooting.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and the community.
