In Gainesville Florida an 11-year-old boy, Jarvan Jackson, died Tuesday just two days after he was accidentally shot by a 4-year-old on Mother’s Day, according to officials. The police received a 911 call to the Cedar Park Apartments on Sunday and found Jarvan Jackson injured inside one of the units.
WTEV reported on the day of the incident that the woman who called 911 said, “The children were covered in blood. I went inside the house because I heard all the kids screaming and the little boy was laying on his back, covered up.”
An unidentified woman also said there were at least six children inside the apartment where the shooting took place, and a man who was also at the apartment seemed concerned with the circumstances.
PreviewShe added, “He was like, ‘Oh my God, somebody help me, help me, help. I’m going to prison, my life is over, my life is over. He opened the back door and was just like not even paying attention to the children anymore.”
The Tampa Tribune reports, “Police and the state Department of Children & Families are investigating to determine how the younger child got the gun. They also are trying to determine whether there was adequate supervision for the children at the home.”
