GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) — Authorities say a 2-year-old who was accidentally shot by a sibling has died.
News outlets report a Barren County Sheriff's Office release says the child was pronounced dead at the scene Tuesday morning.
The release says investigators determined the child was accidentally shot when a sibling was handling a loaded rifle.
This shooting follows the shooting deaths of two other toddlers in the past few weeks. A 2-year-old boy shot himself in the head and died in mid-August, and a 3-year-old boy fatally shot himself in the head on Friday.
