an article:

Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office tells KRMG the shooting happened at a Twin Lakes home near Shawnee. 
The girl and her 12-year-old brother were playing with a handgun when the brother accidentally shot his sister in the stomach.  
She was flown to a hospital in Oklahoma City and her condition is unknown.  Sheriff's office said the brother wasn't harmed during the shooting. 
No word if any adults were at home at the time.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
