An unidentified Kansas City, KS man set out for a day of fun with his 10-year-old grandson. They stopped at a Cabela's sporting goods store so the grandfather could get an antique .22-caliber rifle appraised. He was in the back of his SUV, unloading the weapon when he unintentionally discharged the gun. The bullet went through the side of the vehicle and struck his grandson who was standing outside.
The boy was struck in the head and taken to Children's Mercy Hospital were he was listed in serious condition. Police said charges will probably not be filed against the grandfather. "He's pretty upset as one would expect," said a police spokesperson. "Thoughts and prayers are with the family we hope everything turns out OK."
