Online video shows girl fatally shooting cousin and herself
ST. LOUIS – Two young cousins were livestreaming from a St. Louis apartment when one child fatally shot the other before killing 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.
Police initially described it as a murder-suicide. The girl’s grandmother, Susan Dyson, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that she saw the Instagram Live video the two cousins were making together.
She says they were playing with a gun when it went off. Family members said that after Kuaron was shot, the video showed Paris reaching for the gun and it may have accidentally gone off again.
