A four-year-old child is in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head after an apparent accident Friday, according to Brighton police.
Brighton police were called to the 4100 block of 7th Avenue in Brighton around 4:30 p.m. Friday. The four-year-old boy was found with a gunshot wound and was taken to Children's of Alabama, a Brighton police lieutenant said.
The boy and a four-year-old girl were in a bedroom and one of them apparently got a hold of the gun.
Police were not sure which child had the gun, and the incident was under investigation.
This is near the home of Porter, Porter & Hassinger, P.C. Maybe the NRA President can defend these poor folks from any unnecessary hassle resulting from this unfortunate accident.
