Dad Instructs 6-Year-Old Son To Lie To Cops About Shooting His 4-Year-Old Sister

A man from Wisconsin whose 6-year-old son shot his 4-year-old sister with a .22 caliber rifle in late August has been charged with leaving a loaded firearm near a minor and obstructing an officer.

The son has been shooting guns since he was 3 years old, according to his mother, but was not allowed to shoot without adult supervision. However, the gun was left unsupervised and was loaded when the boy picked it up and, at his sister’s request, aimed the gun at her and pulled the trigger. The little girl was shot in the face but her injuries were thankfully non-life threatening.

Their father, 48-year-old Fred B. Maphis, had initially told the son to lie to the sheriff’s deparment and tell them that he picked up the shotgun and shot the girl when he accidentally dropped it. But later the boy admitted that he pulled the trigger on purpose and was told by his dad to lie about how the gun went off.

1. dumb lie

would easily know a wound from a 22 wasn't from a shotgun. bad enough to get kid to lie but really dumb lie.
