A two-year-old child is in critical condition after the toddler began playing with a loaded gun that went off and shot them in the head.
The incident, which occurred in Jones County, Georgia, happened after a five-year-old found the gun in an accessible area and played with it with the younger child. At some point, the firearm went off, shooting the toddler in the head. The victim’s uncle, 18-year-old Darius Johnson, was arrested and charged with reckless conduct.
Johnson also faces a charge of theft by receiving stolen property because the weapon had been stolen. An investigation is ongoing.
