Two-Year-old Dead After Accidentally Shooting Himself With a Gun Found Underneath a Pillow

A Georgia toddler died Thursday after accidentally shooting himself with a gun he found in his home.

Police responded to reports of a child shot and found the 2-year-old with a gunshot wound, Clayton County Police Department spokesman, Capt. Scott Stubbs told NBC News.

The identity of the boy has not been released; however, it was reported that the boy found the gun underneath a pillow while his father was sleeping.

The boy was rushed to a nearby hospital but succumbed to his injuries.

This case is still under investigation, and the parents are in cooperation, Stubbs said.

Once an investigation is completed, it will be taken to the district attorney's office to see if charges need to be filed.
