A 6 Year-Old Boy Accidentally Kills Grandfather With Unattended AK 47 [VIDEO]
The young boys father is facing negligence charges after leaving his AK-47, containing a loaded magazine, unattended at a family picnic over the Memorial Day weekend. Police say that Juan Manue Martinez Jr. brought out his AK-47 to show to family members and after handing it to his father, the gun was simply set on a near-by table.
A nephew soon picked up the unattended assault rifle and pulled the trigger, shooting his grandfather in the chest and killing him.
Martinez admitted that he had been doing drugs and drinking before the accident, saying, “I was smoking marijuana. I was doing cocaine, and I had two beers.”
Martinez Jr. was arrested, booked, and released from jail after having all his weapons removed from his house. The 6-year-old is in the care of his family and is receiving grief counseling.
