Shooting worst imaginable for any father
The Kansas City Star
Everyone could sympathize with the 44-year-old dad whose gun accidentally went off killing his 7-year-old son.
The tragic shooting occurred Saturday in a parking lot of a western Pennsylvania gun store. Joseph Loughrey of Sharpsville was getting into his truck when the 9 mm handgun fired accidentally, wounding Craig Allen Loughrey in the chest.
The boy died at the scene at Twigs Reloading Den about 60 miles north of Pittsburgh. The father told investigators he did not realize a bullet was still in the chamber of the gun.
