    I just read this. I graduated from high school here.

    Mom's story isn't adding up.

    The story has been updated. A gunshot wound is the COD. The only people in the house were him and his mom.

    RIP, sweetie.

    No names have been released yet, pending notifications of next of kin.

    No arrests after 3-year-old Frederick boy dies of gunshot wound to head
    Incident still under investigation

    FREDERICK, Colo. - A 3-year-old boy in Frederick died from an accidental gunshot wound to the head, the Weld County Coroner reported Tuesday.
    <snip>
    "We have no reason to believe this was anything other than an accidental firing of the gun while the child handled it," Barbour confirmed to 7NEWS.

    So why is there a loaded gun within reach of a three year old?

    That's worth a manslaughter charge, at the very least.

    FREDERICK, Colo. &#8212; The mother of a 3-year-old boy who fatally shot himself in the head was charged with criminally negligent child abuse resulting in death this week.

    (snip)

    The district attorney&#8217;s office said Steine found the gun inside a mattress frame in Warren&#8217;s bedroom. Warren had left Steine home alone while taking her older daughter to school, according to investigators.

    It's bad enough she left a 3yo home alone, but with a loaded gun?? I wish more adults would be charged in the many accidental shootings involving children.

    What a totally preventable tragedy :( RIP, little Sheine.

    Exactly how long was this child at home alone for?
    If she says that she took her daughter to school she left in the morning, presumably... but the article says the emergency call was made at night.

    ETA: an earlier article says the 911 was called at ten a.m.

    It is NOT a lot of work to bring a three year old along on a school run. Toss a jacket on him and put him in his car seat, bring sis to school, come home. Carry him if you have to...I can sometimes see both sides of a situation, but I really can't here. There was NO excuse to leave a three year old home alone and ABSOLUTELY no reason to leave him there with a LOADED GUN that he can REACH.

    Although no one here is saying it, I do get tired of the, "He/She learned his/her lesson! His/Her child died!" It isn't always about teaching a lesson. Sometimes, it really is about justice for the victim and showing an example to society at large that we do, indeed, value our children.

    wow,what a horrible story even if this is what really happened. however the whole thing seems fishy to me? Even if it was not night but 10 AM when she called 911,what time does her daughters school start?How far away is the school? Why would she leave the baby ?? ...and how long exactly did she leave him? Why did she call the babysitter first,saying she can't find her son,when he's laying dead in the bedroom???? ...and then she tells her why should she call 911 he's breathing????....and she tells 911 he hit his head and she's manipulating her older daughter,telling her she would be taken away???...and the step dad is hiding his face in shame instead of acknowledging a tragic accident???? IMO something is way off here beyond leaving the baby home alone with a loaded gun......
