A young Georgia girl was accidentally shot and killed by her friend as the two 5-year-olds played with a loaded gun last week, authorities said.
Jada Willingham and her friend were playing with the gun inside a bedroom of a Lithonia home Friday when the gun went off and a bullet struck Jada in the face, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
There were two other children and the babysitter in the home at the time.
The 68-year-old babysitter, who is the grandmother of one of the children, rushed to the bedroom and found Jada bleeding from her face.
DeKalb County police responded to the home around 2:30 p.m. and found the woman holding a cloth to Jada’s face, desperately trying to stop the bleeding, according to an arrest report obtained by outlet.
Jada was rushed to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston Hospital, where she later died.
The girls had been playing with a loaded 9mm Smith & Wesson, which belongs to the playmates’ mother, who’s in the military.
The friend found the weapon in her parent’s room, tucked under the bed and on top of an ammo box. The two friends then went into a separate bedroom to play with the firearm, the police report states.
Jada’s friend told police she didn’t know the gun was loaded with bullets, and that she “only pulled (the trigger) back a little bit,” police said.
Chad Brooks was arrested Saturday and has been charged with second-degree murder and second-degree cruelty to children after police said he left the gun unattended.
Cops didn’t reveal the relationship between Brooks and Jada’s friend. WAGA-TV reported Brooks is the babysitter’s son-in-law.
Keisha Walker demanded other adults should be held responsible for her daughter’s death.
“The babysitter showed so much negligence when my daughter got shot,” Walker told the TV station.
“Words can’t explain how that little girl was, and I’ll never see her again. I’ll never get another Jada.”
