An 11 year-old boy was shot and killed by a 4 year-old relative when a party for little kids was left unsupervised with a gun. Jarvan Jackson was trying to get the gun away from the 4 year-old and 2 year-old who were playing with it when the gun went off, wounding Jackson, who later died in Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida.That's the sad part of this particular story, here's the ugly part. The adult in the apartment, who we only know was a male not related to Jackson, thought mostly of himself when the shooting happened. A neighbor heard the shot and the screaming, called 911, and did what she could to help until the ambulance got there.
Jarvan Jackson joins the ranks of a group America should be shamed into doing something about: since the massacre at Newtown CT, a child has died every other day due to guns.
