A 13-year-old boy shot his 14-year-old sister with a homemade gun in Georgia, according to the Sheriff’s office. The boy was arrested.

The shooting occurred on November 27, after two people went to Wilson Brandon Scott’s house to purchase a gun he made. However, they stole the firearm and attempted to flee. Wilson shot at them but instead struck his 14-year-old sister, Kyra Scott.

Police arrested Wilson and one of the men who attempted to buy the gun, who was identified as Yusef Jabryl McArthur El, 19. Police are still looking for the other person involved.

The 13-year-old was charged with felony murder. McArthur was charged with robbery and felony murder.

"It's so sad ... because the mother's losing two kids at one time," said Douglas County Sheriff Tim Pounds.

The 13-year-old had been making weapons from “start to finish” and was selling them throughout several Georgia counties, said Pounds.

Investigators did not detail how the homemade guns were being made. However, most likely they were “ghost guns,” or self-assembled guns made with parts that do not have serial numbers.

From 2016 to 2020, more than 23,000 ghost guns were recovered from crime scenes. "There's no serial number, you can't trace that gun,” said Pounds
