A San Bernardino mother was arrested after her 12-year-old son was shot and killed by his twin brother, who gained access to an "unsecured" firearm prior to the accidental shooting, police said Tuesday.

Officers responded to the 900 block of East Central Avenue around 7:30 p.m. Monday, where they found the pre-teen with a gunshot wound, according to a San Bernardino Police Department news release.

The boy died after being transported to a local hospital. He was not immediately identified.

During the investigation, police discovered the siblings were able to access an unsecured gun, the release stated.

One of the boys accidentally fired the gun, hitting the other, investigators said.

Police later contacted the mother, identified as 45-year-old Gabriela Keeton, and took her into custody in connection with the child endangerment case, according to the release.

Keeton was booked into jail on suspicion of child cruelty resulting in possible injury or death, inmate records showed. She is being held on $100,000 bail.

A police spokesperson told CBS2 the two brothers were playing with an unloaded and unsecured gun in the master bedroom of the home with ammunition nearby. At some point, the gun was loaded and one of the brothers pretended to shoot the other when the gun went off, police said. It is being considered an accident.

The mother of the children, 45-year-old Gabriela Keeton, was later contacted at the scene and was taken into custody on child endangerment charges. She is being held on $100,000 bail and is scheduled to make her first court appearance Thursday.

That doesn't sound like an accident to me.
