Girl, 11 shot, killed by 2-year-old brother

Investigators say 11-year-old Jamara Stevens was killed when she was shot by her  2-year-old brother, who was playing with a gun.
An 11-year-old girl was killed by a 2 year-old in Philadelphia Saturday after the children were left unsupervised with a gun in the room.

The children were playing in a bedroom when the toddler pointed the cocked handgun at his sister Jamara Stevens and fired, hitting her in the arm around 10 a.m. Saturday, police told NBC10 Philadelphia.

The bullet traveled through the girl chest and struck her heart, police said. She was taken to a hospital but was pronounced dead, the station reported. The little boy was found with a burn and traces of gun powder on his arm.
Tiffany Goldwire was in the home with her four children, ages 14, 11, 7 and 2, the station reported.

Police believe her boyfriend came over and brought the gun, which was left with the children in the room when she went to the bathroom, according to NBC10.
No charges were filed Saturday. Police did not immediately return a message Sunday for an update.
