    TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — A 6-year-old boy who was accidentally shot in the head by a 4-year-old playmate has died from his wounds, authorities said Tuesday night.............

    The 4-year-old, whose name was withheld, was not injured.

    Prosecutor Joseph Coronato, speaking earlier Tuesday at a news conference, said the boy got the .22-caliber rifle from his home and it discharged accidently Monday evening. The children, whose families live in the neighborhood, were about 15 yards apart.

    The younger boy's mother called 911 to report the shooting, Coronato said.............more at link......

    Again, a child dies because a gun is available...have your guns if you and they are legal but for goodness sake, keep them away from children...and there is no excuse IMO.
