A 3-year-old Ohio girl is in critical condition after being shot by her 4-year-old brother.
The incident happened at 10am Saturday in Lorain, Ohio, just 30 miles west of Cleveland. Police says that the two kids were playing all alone in the bedroom. The brother then got curious and found a .40 caliber handgun. He accidentally pulled the trigger and shot his sister. A police report says the father of the 3-year-old girl was holding her in his arms when officers arrived. The report also says the 4-year-old boy was crying and that he repeatedly told an officer he was sorry.
The police said that the investigation will be turned over to the Lorain County prosecutor’s office to determine if criminal charges will be filed.
My question to you is this: Why would the parents hide a gun in a drawer?
