Two Georgia children have died in what appear to be accidental shootings at the hands of other children.
Multiple media outlets, including Morris News Service, report that a father in Waycross is facing charges after police say his 10-year-old daughter was shot and killed by her 12-year-old brother.
The Ware County Sheriff's office says 33-year-old Joshua Scott Jowers is a convicted felon who was not allowed to have a gun.
Deputies say Powers and his wife were working and had left their two children alone at home.
They say the 15-year-old boy was trying to make sure the 12-gauge shotgun was not loaded, when it accidentally fired and fatally struck the girl on Friday afternoon.
The shooting happened the same day that a 15-year-old boy shot and killed his 11-year-old playmate while handling a gun. Savannah police say the victim, a boy, died Friday night.
The 12-year-old was charged with involuntary manslaughter, reckless conduct and possession of a firearm by a person under 18.
