According to the Douglas County Sheriff, the teen charged in his older sister’s accidental shooting death was attempting to shoot at people who were reportedly attempting to rob him.

Sheriff Tim Pounds said in a news conference on Wednesday afternoon, days after 14-year-old Kyra Scott was tragically gunned down in Douglasville on Saturday night, that her 13-year-old brother owned up to shooting her.

Pounds said the brother and a 19-year-old are now in custody in connection with the deadly shooting.

According to authorities, the 19-year-old was supposed to purchase a homemade weapon made by the 13-year-old.

Instead of paying, the 19-year-old and another unknown individual allegedly robbed Kyra’s brother and attempted to flee with the gun.

That’s when, according to Pounds, gunfire erupted, and the 13-year-old boy ended up shooting his sister while attempting to shoot at the alleged robbers.

“Now this kid is 13 years old, but he’s making weapons. Semi-machine guns,” Pounds said. “And he’s selling those weapons on the streets of Douglas County, Carroll County, Atlanta everywhere.”

Pounds stated that the teen was creating “ghost guns” from beginning to end. Ghost guns are untraceable firearms made from online-sold parts. Authorities believe the gun that killed Kyra was made by her brother.
