Brother charged with fatally shooting sister in Milwaukee


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A Milwaukee teenager is charged with reckless homicide in the death of his sister.

On Tuesday, officials say 15-year-old Brendalyz Morales was shot in the forehead in the living room of her home on Milwaukee's south side.

Her 19-year-old brother, Miguel Morales-Rodriguez, told police he was arguing with his sister over a video game and pointed a gun at her. Detectives say he eventually told them he pushed the magazine release button on the gun, which caused his finger to pull the trigger and the bullet to strike his sister.

He was charged Friday with second-degree reckless homicide.
