A two-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed himself after finding his dad’s loaded gun in a pick-up truck.
The incident happened when Warren Bennett Oser, from North Carolina, US, climbed into his dad’s vehicle through an open door at their home in Benson and discovered a loaded Smith & Wesson 40-caliber handgun.
According to prosecutors, the weapon was left on the front seat when the two-year-old started to play with the gun. The toddler, whose parents were at home at the time of the shooting, then accidentally shot himself in the head and he was quickly rushed to Johnson Medical Center Clayton.
Warren was tragically pronounced dead on arrival.
