On Sunday, another responsible gun owner in Rock Hill South Carolina, just lost a toddler in their life to the gun they love.
Savion Barrow, 3, was taken by EMS ambulance from his home on Amelia Avenue to Piedmont Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead by hospital staff shortly after his arrival, York County Coroner Sabrina Gast said.
Capt. Mark Bollinger, spokesman for the Rock Hill Police Department, said Savion somehow got his hands on the gun and shot himself.
Sunday’s shooting was the second by a toddler in Rock Hill in just a month.
Last month, Rock Hill police charged the great-aunt of a 2-year-old boy with unlawful carrying of a gun after the child was able to get the gun while in the woman’s car,accidentally shooting the child’s grandmother. The grandmother survived.
