|Gavin Brummett, age 7|
From an article:
Saline County Sheriff’s officials said that’s when Brummett’s father heard two shots and saw that Gavin had shot himself. He was rushed to Salina Regional Health Center, and then airlifted to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, where he died.
Deputies say the incident highlights the importance of extreme caution with firearms–especially around children.
“Just the basic firearm safety,” Rick Heinrich of the Saline County Sheriff’s Office said. “Where the parents are with the child and supervising very closely watching what they do and working with them and having that close parental supervision right there with them.”Or, better yet, keep guns away from young children.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
