The girls were left alone in the bedroom at the same time at night because one parent believed the other was watching them. Gonzalez said the three-year-old boy found a loaded gun and fired one shot, hitting his sister.
A four-year-old girl died at the scene.
Hearing the gunshots, family members entered the bedroom, secured the gun, and reported the incident to authorities.
