    It says he's in critical condition. Mother's boyfriend, who was asleep at the time, arrested.

    It sound like he may live. If so he "dodged a bullet". There is really little excuse for this sort of thing to happen. Where was the mother? Maybe it's not wise to live 3 kids with a boyfriend.

    Why wasn't the gun in a locked gunsafe; and why was it loaded?

    Pathetic.

    What is wrong with people, if you want a gun put it in a gun safe and keep the bullets in a separate place. We do that and have an alarm on ours. I hope he survives without brain damage.

    How does a bullet "graze" cause critical condition? Did it graze his brain?

    I think that any severe laceration to the skull of a young child could put them in critical condition..

    Mostly I am thinking that the force of the bullet at such close range to such a tiny person could cause bruising and therefore swelling of the brain which would be critical even if the bullet itself did not penetrate the brain.
