    ....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).

    Uncertain if it involved failure to effectively store the firearm. If so, California's fairly stiff on this sort of thing:

    Quote Originally Posted by CA Penal Code 12035, excerpts
    (b)(1)Except as provided in subdivision (c), a person commits the crime of "criminal storage of a firearm of the first degree" if he or she keeps any loaded firearm within any premises that are under his or her custody or control and he or she knows or reasonably should know that a child is likely to gain access to the firearm without the permission of the child's parent or legal guardian and the child obtains access to the firearm and thereby causes death or great bodily injury to himself, herself, or any other person.

    (d)(1)Criminal storage of a firearm in the first degree, by imprisonment in the state prison for 16 months, or two or three years, by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both that imprisonment and fine; or by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year, by a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment.

    (e)If the person who allegedly violated this section is the parent or guardian of a child who is injured or who dies as the result of an accidental shooting, the district attorney shall consider, among other factors, the impact of the injury or death on the person alleged to have violated this section when deciding whether to prosecute an alleged violation. It is the Legislature's intent that a parent or guardian of a child who is injured or who dies as the result of an accidental shooting shall be prosecuted only in those instances in which the parent or guardian behaved in a grossly negligent manner or where similarly egregious circumstances exist.
    Condolences to all involved. Sad.

    UPDATE: gun not police-issue; focus on storage/accessibility

    Here are some additional details, from a 7/9/12 article in The Gilroy Dispatch:

    Quote Originally Posted by From the article
    The gun used in the shooting was not a San Jose Police Department issued firearm, although police have declined to reveal the owner.

    The gun was fired while the Orlando home was filled with adults and several preteen children, but it is not clear if anyone was in the bedroom with Preston at the time. Gallacinao did say, however, that without confirming where the pre-teen children were located during the incident, that they were not directly involved in the shooting.

    Gallacinao did not say whether or not Preston’s father, Brandon Orlando, will face charges, but did say that a major part of the investigation will be on how the guns were stored – and despite Orlando being a fellow police officer, Gallacinao said the investigation will be “thorough” and “objective.”

    Quotes from 7/10/12 article in the Santa Cruz Sentinel:

    Quote Originally Posted by From the article
    The law also orders that a district attorney's office take into account the "impact of the injury or death on the person" deemed responsible, and that in the case of a parent, prosecutors must prove the parent "behaved in a grossly negligent manner or where similarly egregious circumstances exist."

    I was into guns and motorcycles when I was teens, early 20's. Then I became a parent. Then my kids grew up and I got back into guns and motorcycling. Some people would've continued both. We make our own choices and live or die with the consequences. I took the CC class with my 21-YO son and we had a blast. We shoot together almost every weekend. If this had happened when he was 3 I don't think I could've lived with it. He was about that age, maybe 4, when he asked for a gun for Christmas. And he meant a real gun, not a toy. I said no. He said, "C'mon Dad, I won't shoot it in the house!"

    OMG I could not even imagine. That is THE worst thing that I could think of being a parent. I hope the parents can somehow find peace.
