Investigators haven’t released details about what happened but the family said the child picked up the gun and shot himself.

“It hurts my stomach. Because he didn’t know any better,” said Miranda Hobbs.

  1. David Philip Pina says:

    Wouldn’t it be nice if the reporter could practice some professional journalism and at the same time, not repeat what others have said and write it down but develop their own individual comments and create a story from that. I think this would help to define a style for the journalist that others would recognize and appreciate. If I can see a video and the same words are in the report, I feel like I’ve missed out…
