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.
WSVN explains:

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.
