Today's Tale from Gun Nutty USA

I offer a daily item in this spot--some tragedy that's particularly horrid.  Today's:  Boy, 5, in ol' Kentucky,  shoots and kills sister, age 2, with rifle.  Coroner "said the children's mother was at home when the shooting occurred, and the gun was a gift the boy received last year." Just a "crazy accident."

Joe Nocera at the NYT does a daily collection of incidents.  Here's today's, plus some highlights:
Denver, Colo., police are investigating a Monday shooting that left an 8-year-old boy in critical condition. The boy was sitting in the backseat of a car driven by his parents when a bullet entered through the back, near the license plate. It is unclear if the car the boy sat in was targeted or in the wrong place at the wrong time.
A man and woman were shot in front of their house in Dallas, Tex., by the woman’s ex-boyfriend Monday night. Both victims were shot multiple times. The man is expected to survive, but police say the woman is in critical condition. 32-year-old Lenar Alexander Corales was named as a suspect.
A man was jailed for investigation of murder and manslaughter after fatally shooting his friend’s brother in the face during a rabbit-hunting trip in Bend. Ore., Sunday afternoon. The suspect, Montana Silk Marlett, 24, fled after shooting 19-year-old Devon Moschetti.
