Man leaves gun on bathroom floor, toddler finds it

34-year-old Ron Allen of Savannah, Georgia took a loaded handgun from the waistband of his pants when he used the bathroom at his girlfriend's house. He placed the gun on the floor and left the weapon there when he left the room. A short time later, his girlfriend's 2-year-old son went to wash his hands. He found the handgun and unintentionally shot himself in the head. The boy remains in critical condition at a Savannah hospital.

Allen has been charged with second degree cruelty to a child and reckless conduct. He has been denied bond. His lawyer argued that Allen was employed as a longshoreman and was not a flight risk. "This is an unfortunate accident situation that occurred here," he said.

Ohh shoot.
