Kentucky toddler killed by 3-year old sibling who found loaded pistol

A 13-month old was shot dead in Radcliff, Kentucky, by a 3-year old sibling who got hold of a loaded, unsecured gun in the home.

From the article:

Police said when officers arrived at the home on Keith Ct., they found that a 13-month-old had been fatally shot by a 3-year-old. 
Investigators said they believe the 3-year-old found a pistol in the home and caused it to accidentally discharge while playing with it.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
