The Fayette County Sheriff's office confirms a four-year-old boy dies after accidentally shooting himself Friday.
This happened at a home in Elgin.
According to reports, the boy's mom and two children were visiting a friend at the Elgin home.
The Fayette County Sheriff, Marty Fisher, says the four-year-old, as well as a younger child, were left inside while the mother and friend stepped outside.
This is when the gun was fired.
Locals in Elgin tell KWWL the boy's mother and friend did not have cell phones, forcing the mother to run and find help.
Don't have cell phones, but they have a gun. Priorities.
As of this post there have been 269 children under the age of eleven killed or wounded by firearms so far this year. There have been 6,309 deaths overall, and 12,955 injuries.
So how many home invasions have been stopped by guns again?
