    KTBS 3 News | Shreveport, LA: ArkLaTex News - East Texas toddler shot by another toddler

    A two year old is recovering from a gunshot wound after he is accidentally shot by another toddler.

    Timpson police say the shooting happened at a home on Neal Street just before 7:00 p.m. Monday. They say two two year olds were in a bedroom alone when one of them found a .22 Magnum pistol. Officers say as the two year old was playing with the gun, it fired a shot, hitting the other toddler in the abdomen. The injured toddler is recovering at LSU Hospital in Shreveport. The other child was not injured.

    Police say the investigation is ongoing.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Sounds like child endangerment charges need to be brought.

    Why would you leave a two (2)... two-year olds unattended anyway?
    No gun safe? Not even a 'high' shelf?
    Very sad for the toddler, the gun's owner has some real explaining to do...possibly facing some serious legal and civil problems now.

    ugh. Come on... easily preventable. Out of all the things that can happen to a toddler, to have this happen... there's really no excuse.

    people are forever putting guns under their beds or in their nightstands. Kids will find them every time. I sleep with my revolver under my pillow, and the first thing I do when I get up every morning is secure the weapon either on my person or in a locked location. I don't have any children in my house, but safe is safe.
    What a sad thing to have happen to this little kid. Thankfully, it was not a worse outcome.
