Once again, politeness turns out to be child’s play.
Investigators say the child and his father went over to an older man’s home, a friend, to help work on the flooring Thursday. When the father and homeowner went to get more supplies, police say the child was left in the care of a woman at the home, who didn’t live there.
Police say the woman had just walked out of the room for a minute, unaware of the gun, which wasn’t readily visible. That’s when investigators say the child found it and accidentally shot himself.
