A three-year-old boy was killed, in Oregon, after he shot himself in the head with a pistol, which he found in a bedroom inside his home.
The local police chief’s office revealed that child James Lindquester had pulled the firearm from a drawer next to his bed.
Police and paramedics arrived at the family’s home, trying to save the child, who was declared dead in hospital.
The incident caused the authorities to urge the owners of the weapons to put them in closed places and store them far from ammunition and children.
It is reported that no charges have been brought against anyone.
