Authorities in Louisiana say a boy shot and killed a 90-year-old woman right after playing a violent video game.

The boy is only 8 years old, and under the law, he can't be charged.

It happened in a small town about 20 miles north of Baton Rouge.

Sheriff's deputies say the boy had just finished playing "Grand Theft Auto 4" when he intentionally shot the woman in the back of the head while she was watching TV.

The child originally told investigators it was an accident.

Deputies say the gun belonged to the woman and are still trying to determine a motive.

Under Louisiana law, children under ten cannot be charged with a crime, but he could still face sanctions under the juvenile system.
