After 2-Year-Old Shoots Self, Columbus Dad May Face More Charges
Authorities say a 2-year-old boy who shot himself with an unsecured gun has died in central Ohio, and a grand jury will consider whether charges are merited against his father.
Thirty-four-year-old Brandon Hill, of Columbus, was initially charged with child endangering last week after police said his son apparently grabbed a firearm that wasn't properly secured and shot himself in the head. Hill flagged down an officer for help in a parking lot of a pizza parlor near his home.
The boy died Friday at a hospital.
The Franklin County prosecutor says the case now will be presented to a grand jury for other possible charges.
Court records don't indicate whether Hill has a lawyer.
