A 4-year-old boy was shot and killed by his 4-year-old female cousin while they were playing with a gun, Detroit police said.
[...] Detroit Police Public Information Officer Adam Madera said the children found a "long gun" under a bed, pulled it out and began to play with it. ... "At this time, although it's early in the investigation, this appears to be a tragic accident," Madera said.
"It's too early to say if charges will be filed in this case," Detroit Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson said, because apparently, it's too early to say whether leaving a loaded long gun under a bed near where 4-year-olds are playing is anything but "a tragic accident."
Tragic negligence, more likely. And there should never be a question about prosecuting gun owners whose negligence leads to the death or maiming of small children.
