3-year-old shoots, kills 1-year-old with unattended, loaded gun

The family of a 1-year-old boy shot to death by a 3-year-old playmate is speaking out about the tragedy.

The child’s aunt said 1-year-old Braylon Robinson was playing on the floor with two other children, ages one and three, who were described as the children of a family friend.

Investigators said they believe the boy was shot by a 3-year-old child boy.
