Toddler Shoots Grandpa In The Neck After Finding Gun
A 46-year-old man in Davidson County, North Carolina was shot in the neck on Thursday when his 3-year-old grandson found and fired an unsecured weapon.
Davidson County Sheriff’s Department officials told WXII Channel 12 that they received a 911 call just after 7 p.m. Thursday reporting that Nicholas Cardillo, 46, had been shot by his toddler grandson.
Paramedics transported Cardillo to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, where his injury was treated and found to be non-life-threatening.
Cardillo told police that he was in the shower when he heard a noise and emerged to find the boy holding a .380-caliber pistol. He reportedly told the boy to set the weapon down, but it went off.
Police are investigating the incident. Cardillo said that he had set the gun down when he took off his clothes to shower. He removed the magazine from the pistol, but neglected to clear the bullet in the firing chamber.
According to Bloomberg News, the Center for American Progress and the CDC, Americans are now more likely to die from gunshot injuries than in auto accidents.
Bet this will teach grandpa’s dumbazz to be more careful with his firearm.
