8-year-old boy unintentionally shot by babysitter

39-year-old Mike Lee Dickey was babysitting an 8-year-old Casa Grande, Arizona boy.  According to police, at about 2 a.m., Dickey was in the bathroom removing his .45-caliber handgun from the waistband of his pants when he unintentionally discharged the gun. 

The bullet passed through two doors and struck the 8-year-old in his arm while he lay sleeping in a nearby bedroom.

The boy was flown to a hospital in Phoenix for treatment.  No charges have been filed but the report has been passed on to the County Attorney's Office.

Thanks for the post. People who are really concerned about their safety may simply join the Firearms safety training classes and get the guns of their own. But the killers are not allowed.
