Officers “attempted to render first aid; however, the child died at the scene,” police said.
Police determined through a preliminary investigation that a 13-year-old boy was “handling a gun” inside the home, police said. “Several other juveniles were present as they were attempting to make a social media video.”
It remains unclear exactly what circumstances led up to the shooting, but at some point the teen “shot the gun striking the 5-year-old,” police said, adding investigators believe the shooting was accidental.
The teen was arrested and is currently in custody at the Hennepin County Juvenile Detention Center, police said. The investigation is ongoing.
