MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - Milwaukee Police say a gun used by a 2-year-old boy to accidentally shoot and kill himself had been purchased legally.
Zaire Cameron found the handgun in his mom’s bedroom dresser Sunday while he and 2 other kids were watching a movie alone. The parents ran into the bedroom as soon as they heard the gunshot.
A medical examiner’s report said both Cameron parents had recently bought handguns for protection. And Zaire’s mother scolded the child for finding the gun in the same dresser on Saturday and playing with it.
Police say the case is still being investigated. No arrests have been made.
