On Sunday, another child, 4, “died under similar circumstances,” the office said. CNN affiliate KPRC reported the boy found the gun underneath a bed. Both cases are under investigation.
“I think parents need to be more cautious and take care of what they need to take care of instead of leaving that dangerous stuff out for kids to get ahold of. They need to take more precautions and put that stuff away in a safe place,” Don’Ja Helms told the affiliate.
