Last Friday a two-year-old girl was shot in the head by her 4-year-old relative. The girl is currently in critical condition. When her father heard the shot he came running in the room and found the four-year-old holding the .22 caliber handgun, apologizing for what happened.
Detroit police chief pointed out that in the last six months there have been other accidental shootings involving children including a three-year-old who was shot and killed. He says there are too many guns in the city and too many irresponsible gun owners.
"If the child recovers, that's a two-year-old shot in the head, recoveries only do so much. Both kids are scarred for life," he said. "How many kids have to get shot before people realize this is not a game?"
