State Police say they're waiting for the final autopsy from the two-year-old shot and killed in Cumberland County. 

Coroner Gary White hopes to have the autopsy complete in two weeks. 

State Police believe the girl's five-year-old brother accidentally killed his sister. 

Police say he had his own rifle, called a Crickett. 

The Crickett website returned Tuesday evening. The company's lawyer says it was hacked, and down for five days.  The site came back with a change.

Crickett.com no longer has a Kids Corner.  Instead, the User Manual is featured. 

Keystone Sporting Arms makes the Crickett.  The company referred us to its lawyer.  We caught him in the middle of traveling.

"I can't comment, because I have not even seen the website. I'm sure that if Keystone wants to make a public comment about that, then they'll do it through me," said Attorney John Renzulli. 

A Lancaster woman tells us her seven-year-old grandson has a rife against her wishes.

"He tells me it's OK Mama.  If I get shot I just go to the nurse station, and they'll take it out.  He does not understand.  A child that age cannot understand the consequences," said Carolyn Halcomb.

Halcomb belongs to a group called Moms Demand Action.  She protested in Louisville earlier this week for new gun control laws.  She wishes Cricketts were illegal.

"To manufacture guns for children, I would like to see them out of business.  They don't need to profit off of children," said Halcomb.

Keystone Sporting Arms feels like it's the victim.

"Despite the efforts of some folks who, we don't know who exactly hacked the website; We're now up and running," said Renzulli.
