Po­lice say a 3-year-old shot and killed a 1-year-old sis­ter af­ter a man placed the younger sib­ling in a bed with his gun, Mem­phis Po­lice said Satur­day.

Po­lice said Shawn Moore, 25, has been charged with crim­i­nally neg­li­gent homi­cide, be­ing a felon with a hand­gun and tam­per­ing with ev­i­dence in the death of Rob­bin Keefer.

Po­lice say Rob­bin was shot Fri­day morn­ing at a Mem­phis apart­ment com­plex.

Wit­nesses heard a gun­shot, and no­ticed Rob­bin had been hit, po­lice said. She was pro­nounced dead at a hos­pi­tal.
