HOMER, Mich. — Police say a 12-year-old Michigan boy was shot and killed when a gun being cleaned by his father went off.
Police say Ian Dunn died Tuesday afternoon at the home about 90 miles west of Detroit. Police are investigating, but they say the shooting appears to be accidental.
Police Chief Steven Fisher tells WWMT-TV that the father, 41-year-old Kevin Dunn, was cleaning the rusty gun. Fisher says it had been in storage for some time and the father had forgotten that there was a round in it.
The boy was struck in the head when the gun went off. He had been home sick from school.
I never stop feeling overwhelmed by the senseless tragedy that could have been oh so easily prevented.
And I never stop being absolutely confused as to how a gun goes off DURING cleaning. While preparing to clean I could see. Right after cleaning, same thing. But during cleaning makes no sense to me.

It was a negligent discharge not an accidental discharge.

Stupid Idiot shouldn't have even owned a gun if he can't safely handle it in even the most simplistic manner.
