TAMPA --Why is it we in this country consider this state of affairs as simply normal?
The 29-year-old uncle of a boy who apparently found a handgun and shot himself is facing charges.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the child, Jadarrius Speights, 3, was taken to Florida Hospital just after 7 p.m. Tuesday. He died there.
Detectives have charged Jeffrey Walker with culpable negligence, a third-degree felony.
Detectives say Walker shared a bedroom with the child and had left the 9 mm handgun unsecured in a backpack. The shooting happened at the Avesta Apartments on the 13000 block of North 22nd Street. The boy's parents were in the next room when the shooting happened.
