WICHITA, Kan. — Wichita Police say a toddler died after he was accidentally shot by his four-year-old brother.
Just before 2 p.m. Tuesday, 911 received a call about a shooting. The caller was extremely upset, and dispatchers were unable to get a location from the man. Moments later, two men showed up at Wesley Medical Center with a 1-year-old child who had been shot in the chest.
Officers learned the shooting happened in a bedroom of a home in the 1300 block of North Pennsylvania, near 13th Street and I-135.
Police say three children: a four-year-old boy, a three-year-old girl and a 19-month old boy, were in a bedroom when the oldest child opened a nightstand that contained a loaded 9mm handgun. Lt. Todd Ojile says the child didn't pick up the gun, but was able to pull the trigger.
The 19-month-old, Tomarion, was standing near the nightstand and was shot in the chest.
The 33-year-old father of the children and his 22-year-old brother were in the living room when the shooting happened. Both men took the child to the hospital, where he died about 45 minutes later.
