MCDONOUGH, Ga. (AP) — Police are investigating the death of a Georgia toddler who they say was shot at his home in suburban Atlanta by his 3-year-old brother or himself.
Henry County police Lt. Mike Ireland tells local news organizations the 18-month-old was shot Saturday afternoon. He says the toddler and his older brother were in a bedroom with a few other family members. One of the adults set down a loaded handgun.
Ireland says one of the brothers picked up the gun and pulled the trigger. The 18-month-old was shot in the head.
Police are trying to determine whether the 3-year-old fired the shot or if the toddler shot himself.
The child was rushed to Piedmont Henry Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Ireland says no charges have been filed. The investigation is ongoing.
