A 6-year-old New Jersey child is dead after an incident involving children playing with a gun. The fatal accident occurred when a 4-year-old found a small caliber rifle in the family home. The children were playing outdoors when the younger child went into the home and returned with the gun.
The gun discharged striking the other child in the head. It is unclear whether the boy pulled the trigger or the gun went off by accident. The shooting victim was transported to Jersey Shore Medical Center, Neptune, N.J., where he died of the injuries.
