A 13 year-old boy was shot by another child while playing with an unattended handgun.


A 9 year-old boy was shot while playing with an unattended handgun.


A 5 year-old boy shot himself while playing with an unattended gun.

A 4 year-old girl was shot by a family member.


A 3 year-old boy was accidentally shot inside his home.


An 11 year-old boy, a 14 year-old girl, and their mother were shot by their father.

A 14 year-old girl was shot in the street.

Again, I have stopped including reports involving children over the age of 16; going to 17 would make the list half again as long this week.

Here's to a better week. Thanks for reading.
