Three injured as 2-year-old fires deputy’s pistol inside Wendy’s restaurant
CLAY COUNTY, Fla. — A sheriff’s deputy’s young son fired his father’s handgun while they were standing in line at a Wendy’s restaurant last week, inflicting minor wounds on himself and several other people.
The two-year-old was fishing around in his father’s pants pocket looking for a snack, the Florida Times-Union reported. The boy apparently located his father’s personal .380-caliber Kel-Tec pistol in the pocket and accidentally pulled the trigger.
The round blew a hole in the deputy’s pants and struck the floor, the newspaper reported. Bullet fragments hit the boy, his grandfather and two women standing nearby, police said.
All suffered minor cuts but were not hospitalized.
Crime scene investigators looked over the scene. Clay County officials determined that no crime was committed, and the deputy, Sgt. Matthew Magish, remained on duty.AlertMe
