During a webcast, two young cousins die while playing with a rifle.

Following what detectives are calling a murder-suicide that was livestreamed at a St. Louis birthday party, two young cousins are now dead.

Around 2 a.m. Friday, Kuaron Harvey, 14, and Paris Harvey, 12, were live on Instagram when a gun that the younger girl was playing with went off and murdered her cousin, driving her to shoot herself, according to CBS News.

The fatal occurrence was first classified as a murder-suicide by police, however the victims’ family disputes this.

“It wasn’t a homicide.” Paris’ heartbroken mother, Shinise Harvey, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “It wasn’t a suicide.” “It was a bizarre accident,” says the narrator. “It took place.”

Relatives who saw the footage stated the couple was “trying to be too cool” at the time of the shooting.

The cousins were discovered unresponsive at 2:07 a.m., and both were declared dead at the scene, according to police.

Susan Dyson, the deceased girl’s grandmother, said, “It wasn’t a circumstance where they were squabbling or anything like that.” “They were playing with a gun when they weren’t supposed to be.” They shouldn’t have been doing it, of course.

Dyson answered, “I suppose it simply went off.” “It went off by accident.”

She claimed the two went into the toilet to video in front of a mirror while at a birthday party for younger family members. That is when the disaster struck.

According to the family, the two were so close that they acted like “brother and sister” when they were together, pulling pranks, rapping, or making movies.

“No matter how well we train our children, they will stray,” Shinise Harvey told the Dispatch.

The findings of the inquiry by St. Louis police have not been made public.
