Toddler Shoots Self
Florida 2-year-old dies from self-inflicted gunshot wound after finding loaded handgun in family car.

PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) A 2-and-a-half year old Florida boy is dead after shooting himself with his father’s gun.

Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said the boy’s father, Kevin Ahles, put his son in the family car as other family members helped Kaleb’s parents move out of their house. The toddler then found a small .380 caliber handgun in the glove box.

“It’s just one of those things that happens where everything lined up the wrong way where we had a 2-and-a-half-year-old that was able to take a gun, pick it up, turn it around, and he shot himself dead center in the middle of the chest,” Gualtieri said.

Several witnesses told investigators Kaleb was by himself when the single shot went off.
