A 5-year-old girl was playing with her baby brother and 3-year-old neighbor early Wednesday when she found a gun, police said.
The revolver had been tucked under her grandmother’s pillow in the Detroit home. It was loaded. And while in the hands of the little girl, the weapon went off, hitting her in the neck and killing her, Detroit police said.
“The grandfather went upstairs and found the baby, and immediately called 911,” officer Jennifer Moreno, a spokeswoman for the Detroit Police Department, told The Post. Medics transported the 5-year-old to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
