Nice n Easy Rider Posted November 16, 2009 Share Posted November 16, 2009 3-year-old dies after shooting self Posted: Today at 12:39 p.m. Jacksonville, N.C. — A 3-year-old boy died Monday morning after shooting himself, the Onslow County Sheriff's Office said. The boy, who was not identified, apparently found a gun at his home on Rutherford Way in Jacksonville, authorities said. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital. The sheriff's office said that the child's father is a civilian police officer at Camp Lejeune. Authorities have not said whether charges would be filed. What a senseless tragedy. It's hard to imagine why that gun wasn't locked or locked up but whatever the explanation, that child's parents will probably suffer and grieve the rest of their lives. Link to comment
