DETROIT – An eleven-year-old boy in Detroit has been charged with manslaughter after fatally shooting a toddler.

The boy allegedly got the handgun from his father’s home and took it with him and got into a car parked in the backyard.  A short time later, a three-year-old boy got into the same car.

Police say it’s unclear what happened between the two but the young child was shot once in the face and killed.

Prosecutors say they can’t remember ever having to charge someone so young.

    There just isn’t much good news any more. It don’t matter whose gun it was , or whatever. When I was a kid I KNEW better than to touch any firearm. And I was fromthe big city. Although we didn’t own aby guns we were “TAUGHT” to never touch one if we ever came in contact. So thats the key…just like everything else “being parented”. We have so many parents who don’t waste their time being parents with any part of parenting. So the answer is: we need good Ole parenting ALL THE WAY AROUND. Are you listening Mr. Trump. Cause more kids are dying now from every crime including at the parents hands, then there were ever in my childhood , (60’s-80’s) and back then, parents could be parents. Now most parents pay the kids to leave them alone. Sad but true
