Accidental Shooting of Virginia 4-year-old by Himself - He's Dead - No Charges

Local news reports

A four-year-old Woodbridge boy is dead after he apparently found a loaded gun and shot himself in the head.  Prince William County Police say it happened yesterday afternoon after the boy found the weapon in a truck outside of his home. The boy was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.  Police say at this point it appears to be an accident.  There is no word yet on if any charges will be filed against the gun owner.
When they use the magic word "accident," negligent gun owners get a pass.

  1. Unintentional? Sure. Accident? No.

    Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
