A South Carolina man has been charged in connection with the death of his eight-year-old son, whom he accidentally shot on Sunday night.That's the proper handling of an accidental shooting.What's your opinion?
The State Law Enforcement Division has charged 30-year-old Justin Brueger of Bennettsville with unlawful conduct toward a child for the December 30 shooting death of 8-year-old Easton Brueger. Police claim Justin was cleaning his rifle when it accidentally discharged, hitting Easton in the stomach. The boy later died of his injuries at a local hospital.
According to the State Police warrant, Justin placed his son at "unreasonable risk of harm" by pointing the weapon in the boy's direction while cleaning it. "I want to say I'm very sorry to my son," a distraught Brueger told the court at his arraignment on Wednesday.
Judge Robert Stanton placed Brueger on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond and ordered all guns removed from his Fayetteville Avenue home. He was also ordered to stay away from Easton's mother and her family.
