    Man Arrested After Boy Shoots Self In Head

    Police: Man Arrested After Boy Shoots Self In Head - News Story - WSB Atlanta

    DECATUR, Ga. -- Police in DeKalb County have arrested a man after the boy he was watching apparently shot himself by accident.

    DeKalb County police spokesman J.T. Ware says 26-year-old Joshua White was baby-sitting his girlfriend's 3-year-old son yesterday and called 911 after the boy was wounded.

    Ware says the boy was shot above the eye but is expected to survive. Police believe the boy shot himself using White's gun.

    White was arrested after police say they received conflicting stories on how the shooting happened. He has been charged with making false statements, tampering with evidence and reckless conduct.

    White has been released on bond.

    The child still remains in the hospital.

    I have no problem with him being arrested. He is watching a 3yr old and did not make certain the firearm was unable to harm the child.

    Agreed, But thats not why he was arrested. And I agree with why he was arrested too.

    He certainly sounds like a stand up kinda guy. Let's see...he leaves a loaded gun around where the 3 yr old he's watching can get it and fire it, then tries to hide what happened and even lies about it while being questioned. He should start a daycare service!

    Sad to say...it is stories like these, the irresponsibility, that causes great harm to CCW. With all the stories of late...many can be attributed to wackos and thus an argument can be made on why CCW is important. Buttt...this story undermines all those arguments for...one aaah crap kills all the atta-boys.

    Personal opinion...jail time.
