Police thought that the young girl was shot by her sibling but her father admitted to doing the shooting. So sad. Sgt. Eric Gripp says he,

“admitted to accidentally shooting the victim, and stated that the sibling had nothing to do with it,”

When police arrived the father was no where to be found but he later turned hisself in.
