2-Year-Old Kills Himself With Dad’s Gun
[Pinellas County, FL] Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said the boy’s father, Kevin Ahles, put his son in the family car while other family members helped Kaleb’s parents move out of their house, according to WFLA.
The toddler found a .380 caliber handgun in the glove box, and suffered a single self-inflicted gunshot wound around 4:47 p.m. Wednesday, according to deputies.
“It’s just one of those things that happens where everything lined up the wrong way where we had a 2-and-a-half-year-old that was able to take a gun, pick it up, turn it around, and he shot himself dead center in the middle of the chest,”Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said.
Several witnesses told investigators Kaleb was by himself when the single shot went off.
“The father turned around, heard the gun shot go off, turned around, found the child in the car, saw the gunshot wound to his chest, saw the child bleeding,” the sheriff said.
Kaleb was pronounced dead while being transported to the hospital.
