A four-year-old boy has died after a bullet fired from up to five kilometres away fell through a church roof and struck him in the head.
Marquel Peters was playing a portable video game at the church in Decatur, Georgia, on New Year’s Eve when he suddenly slumped to the ground and began bleeding profusely, US networks report.
His parents sitting next to him had no idea what was happening as they leant down and spotted a gaping wound in his head.
“I saw his Nintendo game fall on the floor, and I heard a sound and I heard him scream a little bit and I looked around and all I saw was blood coming from his head,” Marquel’s mother Nathalee Peters told Channel 2.
