Richmond Man Shot by 4-Year-old Nephew

Local news reports
A man is fighting for his life, after being accidentally shot in the head by his four-year-old great-nephew.

The accidental shooting took place at a home in the 2300 block of Whitcomb Street in Richmond on January 13. Officers were called to the scene at 11:20 a.m., and found the victim, a black male in his 50s, suffering from a gunshot wound.

The victim was rushed to VCU Medical Center with life threatening injuries; he was still in serious condition Monday evening. Family members told 8News he was "clinging to life."

The four-year-old great-nephew of the victim is believed to be responsible for the accidental shooting. It is unclear how the juvenile came into contact with the firearm.
Did you get that, the 4-year-old was responsible?
