Brother kills sister in accidental shooting


A man who was playing with a handgun is under arrest after fatally shooting his sister, according to authorities in Greenville.

Demario Jackson, 22, is charged with manslaughter in the death of his sibling,18-year-old Unica Jackson.

Authorities were called to the home on Bolling Street around 1:00pm Sunday after getting reports that a woman had been shot.

Police say Jackson was playing with a pistol equipped with a laser sight. Jackson removed the magazine from the gun before pointing it at his sister. He did not, however, check to see if a bullet had been chambered.

When the man pulled the trigger, a bullet struck the victim in the head, fatally wounding her.

Investigators say they spoke with several witnesses on the scene and came to the conclusion that the shooting was accidental.
