....The boy, Preston Orlando, was shot with a handgun in the home on the 7500 block of Kentwood Court just before 5 p.m., Gilroy police said. He died on his way to a hospital.
(I really feel for the family)
This is tragic regardless of what will come out in the next couple of days. Undetermined if the child was handling the weapon or someone shot the child, at this time.
.........Gilroy police (south of San Jose), the Santa Clara County district attorney and county medical examiner are investigating the death and looking into how gun was stored, police said.
God Speed to the child.
Parting comment; I hope there was not a situation where 'other dirt' or poor associations by the dad come to play. It is pretty common with some on that PD (this is my speculation, not based on any fact).
