A 3-year-old boy in Kyegegwa district has been brutally pierced to death by his senior.

The two children whose names have been withheld because they are minors were reportedly involved in a scuffle before the ugly incident occurred.

The two are residents of Kitemba village, in Rwentuha Sub-county, Kyegegwa District.

However, Police there has attributed the incident to domestic violence in the home that must have traumatized the children.

D/ASP Musinguzi James while confirming the incident revealed that his team has already visited the scene of the crime and evidence has been collected.

Musinguzi says police have started investigations into the incident.

Meanwhile, the body of the toddler has been handed over to the family for burial.
