I kind of want to see the story develop further. A few questions I'd like to see answered. - The summary uses the pronoun "himself", but TFA says it was a girl. What was the gender of this child and does "CmdrTaco" know more than he or she is letting on? - How does anyone actually know the motivation of the kid? Perhaps she played with a controller that looked like a gun, and then mistook a real gun for it, but we don't know that's actually what went through her mind. And there's still the question of why she pointed this gun at herself. Also, apparently the mom was three feet away when it happened. Did she not notice the kid playing with the gun? - Forget leaving a loaded gun out, what kind of a parent lets their 3 year old play a shooting game with a realistic gun??? This level of negligence is staggering to me. I hope the police aren't just investigating manslaughter, but also a possible homicide. I hate to accuse parents who have just lost a child of murder, but all we have to go on from what I see is their testimony of what happened, and everything just seems a bit too convenient. Either both parents are criminally incompetent, or this was less of an accident than we are led to believe, based on what we know now.
