Well, actually, the tot was more in "urbia" than "suburbia". And the house was full of dope. Which, you know, made the presence of the gun pretty much de facto illegal.
And the tot was the daughter of the mother by a different boyfriend; the four-year-old accused triggerman was the son of the current boyfriend.
The current boyfriend who had allegedly left his very loaded, very large and heavy .45 on the kitchen counter. Which the precocious toddler somehow accessed and manipulated well enough to hit the daughter by another babydaddy right in the noggin. Amazing prowess for a preschooler, there. Must be all that X-Box.
Police say Fiona Lee was showering while her boyfriend, 23-year-old Curtis White, was downstairs with Aunesti, White's son and one other child.Yeah. I'd want to question him, too.
At one point, White's four-year-old son grabbed a loaded handgun off the kitchen counter and fired the shot that hit Aunesti, police say.
Officers say Lee saw the gun should have put it away.
Police are looking for Curtis White, who police say has an extensive criminal record, they say they want to question him.
The NRA didn't cause this; the NRA works hard to prevent this. Remember kids, Eddie Eagle says "When you see a gun, stop! Don't smoke dope! Don't shoot your girlfriend's child in the head!"
