Toddler dies in St. Louis County shooting

HANLEY HILLS, Mo. (AP) – Authorities believe a 21-month-old boy who died at a St. Louis-area hospital of a gunshot wound accidentally shot himself.

The boy was shot around 1 p.m. Tuesday at a home in Hanley Hills. St. Louis County police spokesman Shawn McGuire said in a statement Tuesday night that detectives believe the child picked up a loaded handgun and shot himself.

The mother drove the child to St. Mary’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

McGuire says one person has been arrested but no details will be released until the case is presented to prosecutors.

The boy’s death comes a week after the fatal shooting of another child in north St. Louis County.
Nine-year-old Jamyla Bolden was shot Aug. 18 while doing homework inside a Ferguson home. No arrests have been made in that case.
