N.C. Boy Accidentally Shoots Himself, Dies

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - A 4-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the head, and two people were charged with manslaughter after he died early Wednesday at a hospital, police said.

Police would not release the boy's identity but said the shooting happened in a private home Tuesday night.

Tyesha Nicole Lovely, 20, and Carlisle E. Francis Sr., 43, were charged with involuntary manslaughter and failure to secure a firearm from a minor, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said. Francis was charged separately with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Investigators released few details but said an adult and two other children were in the home at the time of the shooting. Police would not say what Francis and Lovely's relationship with the boy was or whether either one was the adult who was in the house.

The boy died after he was taken to Duke University Hospital for surgery.

You see, commish, it isn't the fault of an inanimate object, its the fault of the people who don't take care of them!

Why does this have to happen. I had to go through an NRA firearms training course before I even TOUCHED a bolt action 22 rifle. And these dorks just snatch one off the street. I feel so horrible about that poor innocent child.
