    A 911 address mix-up may possibly be to blame for the death of six-year-old Ian Uro. Uro was pronounced dead on arrival at 9:45 a.m. when he was taken to the emergency room of the Beth Israel Medical Center.

    Police say a central Pennsylvania mother accidentally shot her two young daughters while removing firearms from her vehicle as she prepared to go to church.

    State police say 50-year-old Jane Rhodes of Boiling Springs was removing two muzzleloader guns from the back seat of the vehicle on Sunday when one of them discharged, striking both girls.

    The 11-year-old girl was struck in the leg and her 10-year-old sister was struck in the pelvis as they tried to get into the vehicle around 10:30 a.m.

    One girl was airlifted to a hospital and the other was taken by ambulance. State police didn't release their names, and the hospital won't update a patient's condition without their full name. A phone message left at Rhodes' home wasn't immediately returned.
