A 10-year-old North Carolina boy was shot and killed on Sunday evening when his father’s shotgun discharged as he sat in his living room cleaning the weapon.

The child, Christopher Stanlane, Jr., was hit by the round squarely in the head and killed instantly, police told a reporter for WPDE-TV.

“He was pretty careful with [the gun],” the boy’s uncle, Robert Simmons, said in a report aired Monday night. “I don’t think he meant to hold it in that direction, but the way he was cleaning it, I guess he didn’t pay no attention to it and held it that way. There must have been a bullet lodged in the chamber and it fired.”

Is it normal to "clean a gun" with it loaded? Do people really forget a gun is loaded and then attempt to clean it?

That's just a person being retarded and not knowing rules about how to properly operate a fire arm

So he was cleaning the trigger with the boy staring down the barrel?

Sounds legit

Disregard all rules of common sense and safety.

How do you forget, a gun is loaded? It takes like 5 seconds to find out, it is in your hand, FIND OUT!

Horrible, horrible thing...

...shotguns don't use bullets and I've never seen on that it wasn't really obvious whether or not it was loaded.

I bet he was a responsible gun owner before he shot his kid
