The shooting occurred after 10 p.m. on Thursday, per CBS Minnesota who reported the two children are related.

It's unclear how children at the Thanksgiving family gathering accessed the weapon, the station noted.

In a news release from the Brooklyn Park Police sent to Newsweek, they said that at the time of the incident, a 13-year-old boy in the home was "handling a gun."

"Several other juveniles were present as they were attempting to make a social media video. At some point the 13-year-old male shot the gun striking the 5-year-old male victim," police wrote.

How the American Right Claimed Thanksgiving for Its Own

  How the American Right Claimed Thanksgiving for Its Own Pass the free enterprise, please.Making use of excerpts from Plymouth Colony Gov. William Bradford’s journals, all of these pieces tell roughly the same story about “the real meaning of Thanksgiving”: the Pilgrims went to Plymouth in 1620 with a utopian vision of holding property in common, but after being mugged by the reality of two years of poor harvests and starvation, they abandoned collectivism for capitalist individualism. These articles conclude in roughly the same way: The lesson of the first Thanksgiving was that “socialism does not work; the one and only source of abundance is free markets.

"Preliminary information leads investigators to believe that the 13-year-old male who fired the weapon accidently shot the 5-year-old victim. The 13-year-old male was arrested and is currently at Hennepin County Juvenile Detention Center. This incident remains under investigation by the Brooklyn Park Police Department."

The child died at the home on Thursday evening after being shot.

In a description of the shooting posted online, Brooklyn Park Police wrote that at 10:21 p.m. on Thursday they were dispatched to a shooting at a residence.

"First arriving officers located a victim of a single gun shot to the head and began life saving actions that were ultimately unsuccessful. A firearm, and the person responsible for firing it were located at the scene," it read.

What do Native Americans really think about Thanksgiving?

  What do Native Americans really think about Thanksgiving? The Great Falls Tribune surveyed more than 40 Indigenous people across 12 tribes about their thoughts on Thanksgiving.But as we learned from Eryn Dion in last year's edition of This is America, the first Thanksgiving actually has a fraught history, as the pilgrims later violated their agreements and attacked and encroached upon Wampanoag lands. This brutality was not uncommon — upon arrival in America, Europeans broke promises and inflicted violence, disease and assimilation against Native people nationwide for generations.

Brooklyn Park Police Deputy Chief Mark Bruley told CBS Minnesota that the shooting was "a very unfortunate accident that requires a very detailed investigation, which is ongoing right now."

The 13-year-old boy who has been taken into custody could reportedly face manslaughter charges. The owner of the firearm could also be charged as well.

Bruley urged those with guns to lock them up and keep ammunition locked up separately.

"We as adults, it's our obligation to make sure [kids] don't have access to them," he said, according to the station.

In a similar incident in October, police said they believed a teenager who was playing with a gun in Connecticut accidentally shot and killed a 16-year-old boy.

According to Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, more than 1,300 children in the U.S. are killed by guns each year."

The American Academy of Pediatrics believes the best way to prevent gun-related injuries to children is to remove guns from the home. However, if you choose to keep a gun in the house, it is important that it is unloaded and locked, and the ammunition is stored and locked in a separate location," Nationwide Children's Hospital wrote.
