Indiana Lawful Gun Owner Pleads Guilty to Fatally Shooting 3-year-old Boy in the Head During ‘Gun Game’

Raw Story

A northern Indiana man has pleaded guilty to criminal charges after killing his fiancee’s 3-year-old son while they were playing a “gun game” in their Michigan City home.

Authorities said Zachariah Grisham, 24, frequently played a game in which he would point a real gun at the boy while child would point an imaginary gun back.

Grisham shot the boy in the head in September 2013. He told police he forgot his gun was loaded and pulled the trigger.
Grisham pleaded guilty Thursday to a felony charge of child neglect. He was originallycharged with both child neglect and reckless homicide.
Authorities said the shooting wasn’t intentional.
“It did not meet the qualifications of murder. It’s a very unfortunate incident,” LaPorte County Deputy Prosecutor Dave Ambers toldThe Times of Northwest Indiana.


  1. Another gunsuck loser whose gun lust has destroyed his life, killed the kid, and destroyed his girlfriend. Gunsuck ammosexuals think they are so manly when they caress the little hard object, but they are just pathetic losers, with or without the gun.

  2. Playing gun games with a real gun, with a 3 year old, on a regular basis? Did the girlfriend know this was going on? The original charges should have remained. It's a judgment call by the authorities. It's the authorities judgment that needs to change on these negligent/accident calls.
