Child fatally shot at NE Miami-Dade home

Police have identified the 11-year-old boy who was fatally shot by his 13-year-old sister in northeast Miami-Dade County on Thursday.

After 5 p.m., Miami-Dade Police arrived at the 600 block of Ives Dairy Road, where they discovered She’Marion Burse, age 11, with a gunshot wound to the torso.

According to authorities, he was evacuated to the hospital in serious condition, where he eventually died.

Burse was one of five siblings inside the residence when the fatal shot was fired, according to the police. As the children’s parents were at work at the time of the shooting, no adults were home when the youngster was shot.

According to investigators, Tiffany Callaway, Burse’s mother, is a Miami-Dade Corrections officer.

On a GoFundMe page, Callaway said that her kid was known as “Fat Boy.” “And that he was “kind, fun, and there whenever you needed a grin”

“Imagining family life without Dad is something we never imagined we’d have to do,” she added.

Friday, detectives discovered that Burse’s 13-year-old sister grabbed the pistol from the master bedroom closet’s firearms case.

Police claim he accidentally fired the weapon while handling it, hitting Burse in the torso.

“This only demonstrates that it may affect anybody in the community,” “said Miami-Dade Police Director Alvaro Zabaleta.

They are examining who owned the firearm and whether it was securely secured before one of the youngsters obtained it.

No charges are anticipated to be brought at this time.
