Louisa County Sheriff's Office Investigating Fatal Shooting of Young Boy

An upsetting story. "There is no way that they would leave a loaded gun out. They're good people, they're Christians." What does the gun have to do with being Christian?

LOUISA COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -

The Louisa County Sheriff's Office is working to figure out how a 2-year-old boy was shot and killed while playing with his brother.

Tyler “Ty” Aponte was shot around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 22. Authorities say his 4-year-old brother thought the gun was a toy when he accidentally shot Tyler.

Deputies responding to the Bakers Branch Road home found Tyler with a gunshot wound to the chest and not breathing. They performed CPR, and the child was transported to the University of Virginia Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

Linda Eddy, a neighbor, said she has no idea how the children could have found a gun: "There is no way that they would leave a loaded gun out. They're good people, they're Christians. They're good people, and take care of their children and make sure they have everything they need."
