July 06, 2012  | 

The toddler son of a San Jose police officer was shot and killed at home in Gilroy in what investigators believe was a tragic accident Thursday afternoon.

Emergency workers went to the home in the 7500 block of Kentwood Court at 4:56 p.m. and found the 3-year-old, whose name is being withheld at this time, suffering from at least one gunshot wound to an unspecified part of his body.

The boy was pronounced dead while en route to the hospital.

Bound to happen, guns that are not stored properly, left lying in the open are bound to be discovered by the little kids and curiosity and bullets do not mix. Had this been a civilian, the parents would have been charged with child endangerment, abuse or degreed murder, but as always, a police officer gets seclusion, privacy and sympathy from the union. A innocent child is dead and NO ONE will pay the price for it, but the child.
