For some unfathomable reason a Pennsylvania father put a loaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun in a backpack with his 8-year-old son's video games. The boy unintentionally shot himself and died of a single gunshot wound to the chest.
Charges of involuntary manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child have been filed against the father. In a statement to the press, the District Attorney said, "Leaving a loaded gun in a child's backpack that contains the child's games is inviting trouble. The father may as well have left it in the child's toy chest. The results, as we have seen, are deadly."
