Police on Sunday identified the 11-year-old West Philadelphia girl shot and killed by a younger sibling over the weekend as Jamara Stevens.
The shooting occurred Saturday morning in the 3800 block of Wallace Street after one of Stevens' three siblings found a .357-caliber handgun on top of a refrigerator and brought it upstairs, police said.
A man who visited the home on Friday night had left the gun, police said. Detectives had not yet talked to him as of Sunday morning.
The gun went off in a second-floor bedroom where Stevens was with her siblings, police said. Officers found Stevens' mother cradling her when they arrived.
