A two-year-old Utah boy died after his three-year-old sister accidentally shot him with a .22-calibre rifle in the family's home Friday.
KUTV reported the boy was shot in the stomach in what police say was a "tragic accident."
"The gun had been used earlier in the day by the victim's father and was set down after returning home," Cache County Sheriff's Lt. Mike Peterson said in a press release, according to KUTV.
"The gun was in an unloaded state but did have live rounds in the magazine. We believe the three-year-old had to manipulate the action enough to chamber a live round prior to the incident occurring."
The boy's name was not released.

Bull****! I'll bet that stupid *** left it loaded and is too much of a coward to admit it.

What the hell does it matter whether or not a shell was chambered. The fact is a 3 yr old managed to get a hold of a weapon and kill her little brother. Something that should NEVER happen in a responsible gun owners home.

The gun is an inanimate object.. it's needs human intervention to make it work.. People kill people.

If the child had picked up a knife, you'd be crying knifes kill people... like this recent incident in Calgary where 5 kids murdered by the son of a Police Officer?

What a bloody stupid article. A gun with rounds in the magazine is loaded.

Well, at least they didn't call it a "high-powered rifle." Not until tomorrow morning's Washington Post comes out, that is.
