A 9-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his 2-year-old brother while playing with a loaded gun, Los Angeles police reported Saturday.

Police said in a statement Saturday that officers and paramedics found the toddler with a bullet wound to the torso after they were called to the boys' home in the San Fernando Valley.

The statement says homicide detectives interviewed family members and determined that the gun had gone off while the 9-year-old was playing with it.

Police say no criminal charges are pending.
