The two Pagedale toddlers that were shot inside a home on Schofield Avenue Monday night are expected to survive. Pagedale police say this was an accidental shooting that could of been avoided had the children’s father had a gun lock on his 9 millimeter.
Authorities say the two brothers found their dad’s gun and was playing with it when it went off. Interim Pagedale Police Chief Eddie Simmons said the bullet that was discharged went through one child’s arm and into the head of the other boy.
Pagedale Police say they don`t anticipate charges because the gun is legally owned. Authorities say many police departments offer free trigger guards.
