Kansas City 3-Year-old Shot - No One Responsible

Fox News KCTV5
When interviewing the little girl’s brother, he told police that he had found the gun that morning in the living room, on the fireplace mantel, behind the mirror leaning against the wall. The brother said he took it to the back bedroom and it was then that his little sister shot herself with it.
Police say the little girl is expected to be OK, but has damage to her liver and kidneys.
Authorities say several adults were in the home at the time of the shooting and are being questioned by detectives. Both the mother and [family friend Kenneth] Lee were asleep at the time.
“She is a good mother. She has good kids. Situations happen like that all the time. You know you hear about it on the news, ‘keep the guns away from the kid’s reach.’ Like I said, we didn’t even know there was a gun here,” Lee said.

Police said in their written report that they found a Smith and Wesson .38 Special laying on the bed in the back bedroom and it was loaded with five live rounds and one spent shell casing. Officers also said they found another live round in the living room.

The mother told police the gun belongs to her boyfriend, who is the children’s father, but he wasn’t home at the time.

  1. Another reason for securing a gun in a safe. Always see stories like this because the gun owner needs to be responsible. Gun safes can alleviate many of these accidents.
