RIDGEBURY TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WBNG) -- Pennsylvania State Police are investigating an incident where a 9-year-old fatally stabbed an 11-year-old boy with a knife.

On Oct. 30 around 8:15 p.m., the two children were playing with Nerf toys when a “tug of war” over a Nerf gun happened between the pair, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

The victim was taken to Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre and pronounced deceased after life-saving attempts failed.
