10 year old North Carolina boy dead of self inflicted gunshot injury

A 10 year old in North Carolina died from a self inflicted gunshot wound. From an article:
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said a 10-year-old boy who attended Providence Day School died after a self-inflicted gunshot wound Wednesday morning.
The shooting happened Wednesday morning at a home in the 4600 block of Connecting Road near South Boulevard in Charlotte.
A CMPD source told NBC Charlotte that the father and 12-year-old sister were at home during the time of the shooting. The father was in the shower during the shooting. 
The boy shot himself in the head, according to the source.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.

  1. I'm not near as worried about how he killed himself as why. Was this the case of yet another child on psychiatric medication; medications that have a side effect of causing suicidal thinking?
