(Scroll down for video) A family was shattered when their sister died and their father was taken into custody.

Police in Indiana, refused to classify this case as an accident.

They believe the father committed “a series of heinous and depraved acts” before he shot his daughter to death.

The Lake County prosecutor's office is looking into bringing felony neglect, battery and reckless homicide charges against 33-year-old Eric Hummel.

Police were called to the home at 5:00 p.m., where they learned that Hummel was playing with his children while holding the gun, which he believed was unloaded.

He showed off the weapon to his daughter and pulled the trigger while pointing it at his boys numerous times.

When he pointed the gun at his 9-year-old daughter Olivia, the weapon went off and hit her in the presence of her twin brother and her older brother.

Olivia was rushed to a hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries. The children's mother was not home at the time of the incident.

Neighbors said that Olivia loved playing soccer and her father was the coach of her team.
