Toddler kills his grandpa
BOY FOUND GUN ON TAILGATE OF A TRUCK
A North Carolina sheriff says a four-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his grandfather with a gun he found on the tailgate of the man’s truck.
Pasquotank County Sheriff Randy Cartwright said in a news release that deputies were called to a rural area about 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
Investigators said 57-year-old Danny Patrick of Elizabeth City had been shooting a rifle with his grandson and at some point, the boy fired a shot, killing the man.
The sheriff said in an email that Patrick was shot in the face.
The boy then walked to a nearby home, where Robin Francis said the boy told her his grandfather was dead.
