From an article and 911 recording:
The preliminary investigation by Detective Tracy Woodruff indicated that the child had found the handgun unsecured and started to play with it on the couch. The child was on the couch when he discharged the Spring Armory XD, 9 mm, into his foot. There was a bullet hole located on the couch where the child was playing with the gun. Additionally, besides the mother , there was also a 10 month old child inside of the residence at the time of the discharge.
The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed.
This is the second incident of a child discharging an unsecured firearm. The last one occurred on July 8, 2012 and a 6 year old child discharged a firearm that was left unattended.
Police are recommending that anyone with firearms to ensure they are properly secured for the safety of adults and children in the residence.Here's a better idea. If there are children in the home, don't have a gun in the home.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
