Three-year-old Cheyenne Alexis McKeehan shot herself to death after mixing up a Wii game controller and a real .380-caliber handgun. Cheyenne's stepfather made the astoundingly careless move of leaving a loaded handgun on a table in the living room. The same room where Cheyenne had been playing a Wii game for days with a realistic looking controller.
According to the police statement, after loading the gun and looking for what he thought was a prowler, the stepfather put the gun on the table and forgot about it. There is no excuse for his actions.
