Talladega 5-year-old dies after accidental shooting So here we have another infant "accidentally" shot with a gun that he found in the home. Police responded to a scene at 7:30 a.m. to find the boy suffering from a single gunshot wound, according to the officials. They sent the child to Citizen's Brookwood/Baptist Medical Center where he was pronounced dead around 8:30 a.m. On Friday, Busby identified the victim as Michael Swain, Jr. Swain was found to have accidentally shot himself with a handgun he found in the home. So this isnt gang related or drug related. No criminal activity at all apart from the gross negligence of the parents. And yet this happens every day. Are there any laws to protect Michael and the hundreds of other victims ? Are you required by law to keep your guns in a safe place ? How are kids protected against the stupidity of their parents ?
