Kansas City 4-Year-old Accidentally Shot on January 10th Has Died - Still No Charges

Local news reports
Kansas City police have disclosed the death of a 4-year-old girl who was shot in the head earlier this month by a 6-year-old boy. 

Police said Tuesday that preschooler Trinity Ross was taken off life support last week, seven days after the accidental shooting. 

The Kansas City Star reports an adult had briefly left the preschooler and two boys, ages 5 and 6, alone in the living room of Trinity’s home when the older boy found a gun on a chair. The adult heard a gunshot and found Trinity on the floor with a wound in her forehead. 

Police said the older boy apparently found the five-shot revolver under a jacket. The adult said it belonged to a relative of the boys. 

No charges have been filed.
We can only assume the idiot adult who was in charge of these children was a lawful gun owner otherwise charges would have been filed. When ex-cons and felons in possession of firearms do this kind of thing they go to jail. Not so for lawful gun owners in many cases.

What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.


  1. Who cares? COllateral damage. The real question is, was the gun hurt?

  2. Sometime people don't understand yo see this was my family you just don't know how hard it is and how close these people are to me. And how hard it is to sit hear and hear all the other negative comments about the gun owner. Put yourself in their shhoes for once. Only if you just knew more about the situation.
