Baton Rouge, La. — July 9, 2022 — The tragic incident of a 4-year-old finding a gun and shooting himself is equally sad and frustrating. Children should never have access to a gun, and that’s why it is imperative to secure your firearm in your home with a gunlock or inside a gun safe. My office provides free gunlocks at City Hall. I extend my deepest condolences to the child’s family and loved ones, please keep them in our prayers. This case is being investigated by our East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.
