Girl, 2, Dies After Being Shot by Brother, 4, in Las Vegas Home
Monday, July 27, 2009


LAS VEGAS — Authorities say a toddler has died after being shot by her 4-year-old brother at their Las Vegas home last week.

The Clark County Coroner's office says 2-year-old Elizabeth Zeferina Serrano died Sunday at University Medical Center. No cause was immediately released. The case remains under investigation.

Las Vegas police say the girl was taken to a hospital before police were called about 8:30 p.m. Thursday to a house west of the Las Vegas Strip.

Police say the 4-year-old boy was handling a loaded 9mm handgun when it fired, striking the girl in the torso.

Investigators say the father was home at the time, but the weapon was not properly secured. No charges have been filed.

Hey-Zues Effing Cristo!!

How many of these senseless "incidents" do we have to have before people wake up.

NEWS FLASH!! Kids like guns. They see them all the time on TV. They see them all the time in cartoons. If you don't teach them early, they are going to try and educate themselves and you have tragedies like this.

Oh, and it's a 9mm death - AGAIN! And does anybody want to take a wild assed guess as to what manufacturer's name is on the pistol??

I am betting it wasn't a revolver manufactured by the original Colt Company. :rolleyes:

I firmly believe that not EVERYONE should have a gun in their house. They should have a Right to one, but they really need to exercise some common God Damn sense.

If you can't remember where you parked your car, or where your keys are, or if you stopped to get 4 things on the way home from the store and can only remember two of them, just give it a LITTLE MORE consideration before you buy, load and leave unattended, a FIREARM in your house - you stupid moron!! :mad:

That truly is a terrible story. I'm sure the parents are heartbroken over the event but honestly. MORON! I don't even have kids and loaded weapons aren't accessable to a 4 year old. All this does is give people more ammo against guns and gun rights.

When does the ignorance stop. Kids can pick up a gun and kill, but probably can't break into a Winchester Safe. LOCK IT UP!!!

Sad, very sad. I don't have kids, but i keep any loaded firearms put up high or out-of-sight. If i had a kid or kids around the house, i'd keep the only loaded gun ON me at all times. I hope the boy isn't totally messed up, psychologically.

spittinfire 07-28-2009 07:25 PM

I wonder if the boy even understands what has just happen. Over the next few years as he begins to understand there will probably be a need for some serious counciling. Poor little guy is off to a rough start.

Because these parents are f'ing stupid. Plain and simple............markerdown

Very sad story.

This may not be a popular view, but I am in favor of punishing parents that allow their children to come to harm by being negligent.

Unsecured firearms, lack of safety restraints in motor vehicles, and less commonly, denial of proper medical treatment are some examples of areas were parants fail to fulfilltheir responsibility.

Many people have said to me that the loss of the child and the guilt is punishmant enough, but I don't buy it.
