3-year old Maryland boy shot in head and face by father with BB gun

A 3-year old boy in Hagerstown, Maryland, was shot twice in the head with a BB gun by his father.

He will be serving a year in jail.

From an article:
Wilfong’s children were visiting him on Dec. 23, 2011, when he called his estranged wife and told her their son had shot himself in the face with a BB gun, Wilson told Judge M. Kenneth Long Jr.

His wife told Wilfong to take the child to the hospital, but he did not, and she reported the incident to Child Protective Services, Wilson said, reading from the statement of facts.

The boy was later found to have one BB embedded in his chin and another behind his ear, Wilson said. There was also a welt that indicated the boy might have been hit a third time, he said.

The boy told investigators with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Child Advocacy Center that his father had shot him, he said.
The father also has a record for marijuana offenses and reckless endangerment for throwing objects at moving vehicles.
