Cumberland County Coroner Gary White tells WKYT-TV that the mother said she had been outside on a porch for “no more than three minutes.”
Kentucky State Police say the girl was shot Tuesday afternoon in Cumberland County and was later pronounced dead.
Cumberland County Coroner Gary White told the Lexington Herald-Leader the boy received the .22-caliber rifle as a gift and is used to shooting it. He said the rifle was kept in a corner and the family didn’t realize a shell was left inside it.
White says the shooting will be ruled accidental. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
Where was the father when this tragedy occurred??
Obviously, out buying his 2-year-old daughter a mini-pistol, because everyone knows that the only thing that can stop a bad toddler with a gun is a good baby with a gun.
