4-Year-Old Boy Died After Being Shot In The Head While Play Wrestling With His Dad

The boy’s father who was also shot in the head, is expected to live.

A 4-year-old Indiana boy died Thursday after both he and his father were shot in the head by the father’s gun while play-wrestling, officals said.

The incident occurred Sunday just outside of Bloomington, where deputies from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office were called to the home of 36-year-old Tyler Shaw, RTV6 reported.

Shaw had been play-wrestling on a bed with his son while he had a handgun concealed in the small of his back, Fox 59 reported. The gun then fell and fired one shot, striking both Shaw and his son in the head.

The boy was taken to Riley Children’s Hospital, where he later died. Shaw was taken to IU Health Bloomington Hospital and is expected to recover.

The Glock semi-automatic handgun was sent off for testing to determine why it had fired unexpectedly, the Bloomington Herald-Times reported.

Please pray for this family.
