Grieving family and friends have been posting tributes on social media to 13-year-old Dijonae White, who law enforcement officials say was shot dead by her nine-year-old boy brother after an argument over a video game controller.

He said the boy shot the teenager, a student at Tupelo Middle School in Mississippi, in the back of the head and that the bullet entered her brain.
