An 11-year-old Tennessee boy was arrested on Saturday for the alleged murder of his 8-year-old neighbor, according to police. 

Jefferson County Sheriff G.W. "Bud" McCoig tells PEOPLE that an argument over a puppy sparked tragedy in White Pine, Tennessee. 

McCoig says the unnamed boy fired his father's shotgun into the chest of his 8-year-old next-door neighbor, McKayla Dyer, when she refused his request to see her new puppy.

WOW!! Is all I can say to this  :nope:

 

It may be true that people (with guns) kill people - and NOT guns alone, but SERIOUSLY - parents need to go to jail when their kids are allowed access to their guns!!!!!!

Stories like this break my heart. When parents inundate their children with weapons, and one of those children uses his/her parent's gun, the child is frequently tried as an adult. How is a mis-parented eleven year old an adult? :(  It's a world gone mad. :blink:  Prayers going out for the family of the eight year old.

I hate stories like this. I had the misfortune of taking care of an 8 yr. old for a few weeks after he shot and killed his 6 yr. old brother with a gun. It never ends for the child, a life of "I'm sorry, I didn't mean it." Your heart breaks for them as they so often turn to alcohol and drugs to cope as adults.

So many people are affected by this. The parents of the little girl, The parents of the boy, brothers sisters. I can only hope they come to a knowledge of Jehovah, as only he can restore the loss.

The scriptures say "Those who live by the sword ,die by the sword" Unfortunatly others suffer too

May Jehovah's tender mercies be with both families as they deal with this fatal,  devastating act.    When we think of both families lives changing drasticallly until Jehovah restores others back to life.     The pain , the heartache , the guilt, the "what ifs" or "if only's"   .......WOW!   incomprehensible.  

Hopefully some brother or sister reaches out to them and comforts them from the scriptures  . even though the pain will NEVER go away at least there will be some solice in knowing they will reunite again.

The puppy lost it's little girl who was surely just protecting him in the first place - if this little girl was bullied by this boy, why would she hand her puppy over to him? An innocent protecting an innocent shot by a little boy who wasn't properly taught the value of life. A true tragedy. Only Satan wins.

Another tragedy involving children and guns! Parents who keep guns for protecting the family have to keep them accessible  to protect them, leaving them  readily accessible to their children. Add to that, the violence within the   "entertainment"  media and children have been taught to use weapons whenever the urge strikes them.
