An 11-year-old North Carolina girl was killed in an unintentional gun shooting at her father's home.
Her father was apparently unloading his 20-gauge shotgun when it fired, striking the girl at close range. Emergency crews pronounced the girl dead on the scene.
The girl's 12-year-old sister was present in the room at the time of the shooting. She and her sister had just arrived at their father's home in North Carolina the day before. The girls live in Tennessee with their mother and stepfather.
