Police said Wilta Wordsworth, 15, was shot in the head inside her seventh-floor apartment at 2204 Collier Avenue about noon Friday after the boys brought the handgun to the apartment.

NYPD investigators determined that the boys were playing with the gun when she was accidentally shot.

Wordsworth was taken to St. John's Hospital where she died early Saturday.

The boys were charged with manslaughter, criminal possession of a weapon and evidence tampering, police said. Their names were not immediately released.
