The innocent play of three young children took a tragic turn, police officials said, when one of them reached into the drawer of a nightstand and pulled the trigger of a handgun stored there, fatally wounding his little brother.

“It was a terrible, terrible tragedy,” Lt. Todd Ojile said Wednesday in describing how the 19-month-old boy died at Wesley Medical Center, less than an hour after he was shot in the chest shortly before 2 p.m. Tuesday.

The toddler was in a bedroom of the small house at 1312 N. Pennsylvania with his 4-year-old brother and 3-year-old half-sister, Ojile said. The 33-year-old father of the children and his brother were in the living room, and the door between the two rooms was open.

The two mothers of the three children “were out picking up some things from a store and getting ready to go to work,” Ojile said.

A 9mm handgun was stored in a nightstand drawer in the bedroom where the children were playing, he said.
