In a shocking incident, a 6-year-old boy has accidentally shot and killed his little brother while they played “cops and robbers” with his father's illegally obta-ined gun. The 6-year-old found the loaded revolver on top of the refrigerator and shot 3-yera-old Eian Santiago in the head on Saturday evening, according to the police. Eian suffered a fatal gunshot wound to his head on and died in hospital in Chicago. Their father Michael Santiago, 25, was arrested and charged with a child endangerment felony and appeared in court on Sunday. “The gun was purchased off the street. It was kept loaded, and was wrap-ped in pajama pants on top of the refrigerator,” prosecutor Joseph DiBella said.
