LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say they’re investigating after a 13-year-old fatally shot another 13-year-old inside a house.

Authorities say the shooting happened about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday on Little Crow Avenue, in the southern part of the Las Vegas valley.

Police Sgt. Annette Darr tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal it was still unclear hours later whether the shooting was an accident or on purpose.

Police say three minors were in the house at the time of the shooting.

The girl was taken to the hospital, but succumbed to her injuries shortly after.
