12-year-old shot & killed when brother unintentionally discharges shotgun

12-year-old Halee Marshall, of Catlettsburg, Kentucky,  was helping her 20-year-old brother unpack his pickup truck and move things into the house. The brother's girlfriend was also helping.

According to the county coroner, there was a shotgun hanging on a gun rack in the truck.  As the brother was handing the gun to his girlfriend the gun unintentionally discharged.

The brother told police he had cleaned the weapon and didn't realize the gun had been reloaded.

Halee was shot in the face.  She was pronounced dead at the scene.

"It was accidental," said the coroner. "No drugs or alcohol was involved."
