In Monday's incident, deputies arrived at the home around 10:35 a.m. The children's mother told investigators the brothers, 5 and 6, were playing in the front of the house in the 16800 block of Faring Road when she heard a shot fired, said spokesman Deputy Thomas Gilliland.Leaving a gun accessible resulting in a kid getting shot is a misdemeanor?
The mother, who was in another part of the house, rushed into the front room to find her 6-year-old son with a gunshot to his lower abdomen inflicted by a 9mm pistol that was unsecured in the room. Deputies recovered the pistol and other weapons in a closet at the home, Gilliland said...
No charges have been filed in the case so far, Gilliland said. If they were, the parents could face charges of making a firearm accessible to a child with subsequent death or serious injury, a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to two years of confinement.
