Four-year-old girl dies after being shot in the head by another child

A young girl who was shot in the head by another young child died from her wound on Tuesday, the Kansas City Star reported.

Trinity Ross, 4, was shot on January 10 in her Kansas City home while her stepmother was babysitting three other children. All of the children were under six-years-old.

The stepmother had left the room, heard a gun shot, and then found Trinity laying injured on the floor, according to police.

The woman said one of the children found a loaded revolver in a jacket hanging a chair. The jacket was left by one of the children’s father.

Trinity was rushed to a hospital in critical condition. She was declared brain dead last week and later taken off life support.

I hope that woman is cleared and not prosecuted. I hope the man who left it behind is haunted every single day for his stupidity. What a sad, horrible situation for everyone who loves this girl.

Sad.  Prayers going out to the family.  Are you done with your anti gun rants now?  These posts are getting old.

That is really sad

The father of that child is to blame here totally.  You secure your weapons, ALWAYS!!!  Even if you don't have kids around, you still secure your weapons.

That is so sad. I really hope that the parent donated the child's organs.

  No I am not and I suggest if you don't want to see them then don't click on them.I will post every one I see.

  Where is the rant? How can you turn this article into a rant?

 You know what is really old, the death of innocent children at the hands of guns.

The parents need to be prosecuted to the fullest. No question about it. Negligence is unacceptable when it is so easy to be responsible.

Wow so OP can't post about that poor child's horrible death because it doesn't cater to the pro gun agenda?

I'm not anti gun myself, but its a news story. It can be posted about whether or not you like the timing. The article said nothing about being anti gun.

Your little prayer for the family said in the same breath criticizing that it was even posted shows you don't really care
