He would have turned three on April 20th

Two-year-old Ian Allen died after shooting himself in the head. Ian found a loaded, unlocked handgun in a bedroom in his home. Police arrived at the scene to find Ian in the driveway being held by his great-grandmother. Ian was crying and a gunshot wound was visible to his head.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Children and Families said that they will investigate how Ian was able to obtain a loaded gun.
"People keep guns at home a lot of times for safety reasons, but what we find often is that children end up getting hurt with the gun in the home instead."
Ohh shoot.
