    BAD: 3-year-old shot by felon father's gun

    3-year-old fatally shot by father's gun
    Thursday, December 25

    By The Associated Press

    RALEIGH (AP) - A North Carolina father has been arrested after the fatal Christmas Eve shooting of his 3-year-old son.

    Raleigh police said 26-year-old Eric Eugene Hinton was charged Thursday with involuntary manslaughter and possession of a firearm by a felon. He is being held on $100,000 bond at the Wake County jail.

    Police spokesman Jim Sughrue said investigators believe the child got access to the gun and it discharged. Sughrue said police found evidence Thursday that indicated the weapon belonged to Hinton.

    The investigation is ongoing. Jail workers said it wasn't clear whether Hinton had an attorney.

    Hinton's criminal record includes arrests for larceny, possession of stolen goods, trespass, and drug use and possession. He served several months in jail in 2006.

    Hopefully he will get a life sentence this time, and have a very short life to live!

    Very sad.

    Some types of people should not be allowed to have guns. People, felons or not, who let 3-year-olds get access to guns are one type.

    If the story holds true, he needs to pack his bags and toothbrush. He's going away for a while.
