Police said they found the videos after Barnes, who is not the child's father, was arrested for allegedly attempting to sell a gun to an undercover officer.

In the videos, the girl holds a gun as a man and woman encourage her to say "pow," "bang" and "shoot," police said. Wilson said the gun was a pellet gun, but police said it was a .40-caliber handgun.
