Investigators in Jacksonville Florida say that a 12-year-old Florida boy, Tyron Calhoun, is responsible for the death of a 12-year-old girl Ra'Mya Eunice.
Witnesses say that both of the kids were at a sleepover on Willow Branch Avenue when Tyron went and grabbed a shotgun that was hidden beneath the home and brought it to where the teens were, held it to Ra’Mya’s head and said “Say I won't”.

That's when someone else in the room said “You won't”, and the gun went off and blew the child's skull into pieces.

12-year-old Ra’Mya had become a victim and Tyron a killer within a matter of seconds, as he took off running from the home leaving the other kids in complete shock at what they had just witnessed as the room was covered in brain matter.
The young girl was brought to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The Jacksonville Police Department has now issued a warrant for manslaughter in the death of young Ra’Mya, but prosecutors have not said if they will charge Tyron as an adult.
Gun safety is crucial, and low IQ parents shouldn't keep them loaded anywhere in a home where a child can get his or her hands on the firearm.
