Girl Who Shot Her Cousin Then Herself Twitter
Two young cousins were live streaming on Instagram Live from a St. Louis apartment when a 12-year-old girl fatally shot her cousin and herself in what family members say was a tragic accident.
Police are still investigating Friday’s incident in which a 12-year-old girl, Paris Harvey, shot a 14-year-old boy, Kuaron Harvey, before shooting herself.
Paris and Kuaron were alone in a bathroom making a video in the mirror before the shooting happened.
Family members said that after Kuaron was shot, the video showed Paris reaching for the gun and it may have accidentally gone off again. They said they believed the gun was Kuaron’s.
Both children were shot in the head. “It was no murder. It wasn’t a suicide,” said Shinise Harvey, 35, Paris’ mother. “It was a freak accident. It happened.”
While the video was first posted on Instagram Live (and was subsequently taken down) it quickly made its rounds online, making its way to Twitter as well.
