INDIANAPOLIS -- Police say a 4-year-old boy fatally shot his 3-year-old playmate.
Lt. Jeff Duhamell told The Indianapolis Star that the boy picked up a loaded .45-caliber handgun that had been left on a kitchen table in Fiona C. Lee's house Thursday and pointed it at the girl's head before firing.
Lee's daughter, Aunesti Lee Allen, died that day at Riley Hospital for Children.

The "adults" in the house hold need to be charged with some serious crimes......... Unsat.
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
This is sad, it was preventable, and the adults responsible should be charged with a 'crime'.

Sounds like the parents were already "prohibited persons"....but hey, all those gun laws prevented something bad from happening, right?

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
What a waste.
Makes a person think about what a failure we've become, generally speaking, as a society, with respect to "innoculating" children against misuse of the tool. Any child of 3yrs old knows what guns are "used for." Obviously, they're used to point at people. This is seen in everything from Daffy Duck cartoons to Uncle Bob's unguarded talk at the backyard BBQ. Add to that the simple negligence by an adult in the form of leaving a loaded gun lying on a table, and you get dead kids. I hope the coke-head is happy now.
The coke head/pot head was probably so stoned out of her mind that she forgot the gun she cannot legally own, lying on the kitchen table. Tell me again why we should legalize drugs???

I bet they're already writing new gun laws in Indy. A moments stupidity, a lifetime's regret.

Here below is the mother's booking photo. She is being charged with felony child neglect and drug possession. Her surviving children have been taken into protective custody by the authorities.
She was just fired from her job last week, for coming to work high on drugs. Her drug addiction most likely contributed greatly to her neglect of her children. She had a total of 3 children ( now only 2 ), but has never been married.
Lee's live in boyfriend, Curtis White, was the dead child's father. He is a known criminal. Here is a former booking photo of him:
And here is a photo of the poor 3 year old daughter, who is now dead:
