Jarion Walker, a four-year-old boy, accidently shot himself in the head after finding his father’s revolver in the backseat of a car.
When tragedy happened in the city of Westwego in New Orleans, USA, the 4-year-old was sitting in the back car with his two younger brothers, aged 22 months and one year.He was taken to the hospital right away and died of his injuries around 10:45 p.m. on Saturday, January 29.
His mother was allegedly using weed with another adult in the front seat when the terrible situation occurred, according to investigators.Coroner Gerry Cvitanovich described the wound as
“a contact wound to the forehead, directly above the right eyebrow.”Although no arrests have been made, officers have indicated that an investigation would be conducted.
“I don’t believe it was necessary to make an arrest at this time.” They just lost a child, and it wasn’t on purpose in the least. The gun was discovered underneath the seat, according to reports.” Mr. Lopinto continued.Following the incident, authorities established that the handgun belonged to the boy’s father and advised gun owners to protect their firearms.
