Man arrested for leaving 7-year-old with loaded gun

A Conroe, Texas man was arrested for leaving his 7-year old alone in a car with a loaded gun.

From the article:

A deputy was dispatched to Ford Road in Porter Jan. 28 in reference to a welfare check after receiving information that a pickup truck on the road driven by a reckless driver had a small child riding without a seatbelt or safety seat.

The truck was found at a nearby residence on Shady Oaks Boulevard with the child inside and no adult around.

The boy was found to be playing with the glove box and center console of the truck. A loaded semiautomatic pistol was in the center console, where the child was observed playing.

The father, 29, was arrested for child endangerment.
