30-year-old Bobby Parker of Yuma, Tennessee was shot and killed in his home. Police did not want to release the age or the relation of the child who unintentionally shot Bobby. "It was a tragic accident - I don't want to give any information that would identify him," said the sheriff.
It appears that the child knocked over a high-powered rifle that was leaning against a wall and then went to pick up the gun. As he was handling the gun, it discharged, shooting Bobby once in the shoulder.
Emergency medical technicians arrived on the scene within 10 minutes and transported Bobby to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
