A 6-year-old boy was looking through a drawer in a home in Apple Valley, California. He found a loaded handgun. The boy shot the gun twice. One of the bullets when through the wall, into a couch in the next room and struck a man who was lying there in the neck. The bullet went trough the back of his neck and exited through the front, and continued on through another closet wall. The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment. He is expected to recover.
Police arrested the owner of the gun, 21-year-old Jayquan Crittenden, and charged him with child endangerment and negligent storage of a firearm. The relationship between Crittenden and the child is unclear.
