Toddler Dies of Self-inflicted Gunshot Wound, Found Gun in the Glovebox.

PINELLAS COUNTY FL--
A toddler died on Wednesday night after finding a gun and accidentally shooting himself in the chest, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said.
According to deputies, the boy's parents were moving out of their house in the 1000 block of Misty Hollow Lane in Tarpon Springs just before 5 p.m. when 2-year-old Kaleb Ahles entered their car.

Kevin Ahles, 23, the child's father, had left a .380 caliber handgun secured in the vehicle, deputies said. Kaleb was alone inside the car when the family heard a loud popping sound. Deputies said the toddler located the gun in the glove box of the car and and shot himself in the chest. "He probably barely got the trigger pulled, but it was enough to fire the gun and kill him," said Polk County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri.

The boys parents immediately ran to the vehicle. His mother, 23-year-old Christina Nigro, began CPR while family members on scene called 911.
Ahles was transported to Trinity Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

"There's plenty of witnesses to corroborate that Kaleb was in the car by himself," said Sheriff Gualtieri. "There's no indication of criminal activity, no indication of any foul play other than it is what I described to you as a tragedy."

No charges are expected to be filed.

"Sometimes bad things happen," Sheriff Gualtieri said.

Another case of child suicide?

No. Another case of parental neglect that ended up in a dead child.

If only there were more guns and heavier guns in the glove compartment this issue could have been avoided.

The gun was secured in the car? Maybe I misunderstand the definition of "secured".

Sometimes idiots make really stupid decisions.

Must of been a light trigger pull for a 2 yo to set it off.
And a really stupid father to put a loaded weapon in an unlocked container with children around
