Fayetteville, North Carolina police say they are investigating a shooting in which a two year-old girl was killed early Saturday morning. According to the police, the little girl found the gun and shot herself.
Police said the victim was discovered after they responded to a shooting call around 12:39 a.m.
According to WGHP, No one else at the house was injured.
Which is a relief that the household full of people did not pick up guns, strewn about and just start firing randomly for no reason. What I’m saying here is, get a gun safe. There is no mention of arrests or accountability but we can assume that since ‘guns don’t kill people’, then it must be the party who owns the gun that should be held responsible. And apparently toddlers are more dangerous than guns because lately they’ve been shooting themselves frequently, and it always comes down to irresponsible gun ownership.
The little girl was taken to the hospital where she died from her injuries.
