According to the Charlotte Observer, A 5-year-old girl died after she was shot in a South Carolina home Monday, the North Charleston Police Department said.
Police called the deadly incident an “accidental shooting,” WCBD reported.
Officers responded to shots fired call just after 3:30 p.m., according to WCSC. Up to four unsupervised children were inside the home when the shooting occurred, per the TV station. Police said the kids were playing with a gun they found in the home, WCIV reported.
This is just another tragedy that happened today that could have been different if the firearm was put away safely. Children are always very curious so taking away the curiosity and having the firearm locked away in a Titan Gun Vault with a passcode that the children don’t know can keep everyone safe all the time. Tragedies like this can always have a different outcome. Keep our children safe.
