"Kayden and Bekki Gunter had just returned home Thursday afternoon when she put her purse on her bed and went into the bathroom, Tim Gunter said. Inside her purse was a teal-colored Glock pistol. Within seconds, Kayden managed to unzip the purse, pull the weapon from a holster within the purse and pull the trigger, Tim Gunter said. The child shot himself in the face, according to Senior Deputy Coroner Kent Dill. Despite attempts by a family member to stop the bleeding, Kayden died. "Nobody understands the situation. We're probably one of the safest families around as far as weapons," Tim Gunter told The Greenville News less than 24 hours after the shooting."
