After the big game, I was watching CBS 46 and saw this report. Apparently a four-year old boy discovered one of his parents gun and discharged the gun shooting his six year old sister.  This happened on Laurelcrest Lane in the Seven Hills area Monday late in the afternoon.  The little girl is reported to be in critical condition.

 

I suspect folks will be hearing about this on the ATL morning shows.

 

UPDATE:

 

6 Year Old Girl Severely Wounded in Accidental Shooting

 

(Paulding County, GA)  On Monday April 8, 2019 at approximately 5:47 PM, Paulding Deputies responded to 158 Laurelcrest Lane Dallas, GA 30132, which is in The Park at Cedarcrest subdivision, reference a child that had been shot.  When Deputies arrived on scene they began rendering aid with other first responders to a 6 year old female juvenile that had a gunshot wound to the head.  As soon as they were able, Fire and EMS personnel transported her to an Atlanta area hospital.

 

Once Detectives arrived on scene they began speaking with the mother of the children about what took place.  Detectives were able to discover that the family was loading up in their vehicle to leave the home when the car would not start.  The mother exited the vehicle to see if she could figure out what was wrong with the car and that is when she heard the shot. 

 

Preliminarily, Detectives believe that the 4 year male sibling retrieved a handgun from the console of the vehicle and accidently discharged it striking his 6 year old sister in the head, critically wounding her.  This incident took place inside the vehicle in the driveway of the home.

 

At this point, the 6 year old victim is in critical condition at an Atlanta area hospital.  Thus far, no charges have been filed in this case.

When my kids were that age, I sold all my revolvers and only kept semi-autos that I kept the chamber empty since it took quite a bit of strength to load them.   When I read about accidents like this I am sooo glad I did so.

Automobiles and their use are responsible for more pollution and other environmental destruction, including the largest share of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, than any other human pursuit in the world. Cars also cause 40,000 human and 400,000,000 animal deaths every year in the US. Cars lead to suburban growth (= natural habitat destruction) and social isolation.

The ajc.com says the 6 year old girl has passed away.  So sad.

No words. So very sad. Healing thoughts for all involved. :(
"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."
