ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Police are investigating a murder-suicide at a downtown St. Louis apartment that involved a 12-year-old girl.

Just before 2 a.m. Friday, police were called to a shooting in the 1000 block of Spruce. When they got there, they found 12-year-old Paris Harvey and 14-year-old Kuaron Harvey shot inside.

As authorities work through the incident, they’ve focused their public comments on gun safety.

“No matter how this turns out, I want to remind everyone that the City St. Louis Fire Department- all 30 stations have gun locks,” said St. Louis Director of Public Safety Dan Isom. “We encourage people to go to those stations to get gun locks to secure weapons so we can keep young people safe.”

The events of the shooting are still unclear, but police believe one of the children shot the other and then killed themselves.
