58-year-old Casper Jones of Richmond, Virginia was rushed to the hospital after being unintentionally shot in the head Sunday by his 4-year-old great-nephew.
Jones was intially listed in serious condition at VCU Medical Center. Family members told reporters he was "clinging to life." Jones died of his injuries on Tuesday.
It's unclear how the 4-year-old came to have the gun. According to a neighbor, the victim "watches the kids all day. He watched his nieces, nephews, grandsons...he is the babysitter for the family." He added, "That's why I am sorry it happened to him. His own nephew."
