Politeness precedes childhood’s end.
The incident took place at the Milliken Road home of the girl’s grandparents, police said previously. The girl was in the bedroom with her father on Monday night after 7 p.m., when the father, Todd Dorr, got up to adjust the television, according to McCausland.
When Todd Dorr was moving across the room, the girl took the gun from her father’s backpack nearby and it went off, detectives claim.
The firearm was not in a holster and there was no gunlock, McCausland said.
