Arizona 3-Year-old Dies After Shooting Himself With Father's Misplaced Gun - Naturally No Charges

Police were called to a home in Sahuarita, Ariz., where the boy was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Officer Philip Steele, a spokesman for the Sahuarita Police Department.

The child had found his father's gun and shot himself in the face. The firearm was "inadvertently misplaced," according to Steele, and did not have a safety latch.

The shooting was accidental and no one was charged, according to the newspaper.


  1. Based on the description above, I advocate prosecuting the father to the fullest extent of the law. I would hope for charges along the lines of child abuse (parental negligence) and possibly even manslaughter.
