Logan, 15, died early Wednesday morning at University Hospital in Columbia as the result of a gunshot wound. He was shot in the back of the head around 2 p.m. Tuesday at a home on West Jackson Street in Edina. He was airlifted to the Columbia hospital.
The incident is being investigated by the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Division of Drug and Crime Control. Investigators have not released any information about the incident.
No details, but we can figure on a few things. In Missouri people don't like to be told what to do with their guns. They don't want to be told whom they can sell them to or how they have to be stored. They raise their kids with all the gun safety information they need.
But, when it goes horribly wrong, do they take responsibility for the mess? No, they don't. They call it a tragic accident. They tell us how statistically rare it is. And they go on their merry way.
The owner of the gun should be in jail for failure to secure the weapon properly. It's that simple.
