A child shot and killed another child while in a parked car outside a Pleasant Grove grocery store Sunday afternoon.
It happened just before 12:45 p.m. in the parking lot of the Walmart Neighborhood Market on Buckner Boulevard just south of Military Parkway.
Police said a 32-year-old woman left the two children alone in the car while she went shopping.
That’s when investigators believe the boys found a handgun in the vehicle. The 9-year-old shot the 11-year-old.
The 11-year-old victim was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead. His name has not been released.
