Boy, 7, Killed In Gun Store Parking Lot In Pennsylvania
I got a ton of questions. First, why is a 7 year old in a car seat anyway?
If the father went in to sell the gun then, why did he still have it?
And if this was a pickup, I am assuming there's no back seat therefore that puts the child next to the father in the front. So if that's true (I don't know. I'm only guessing) how did the child get shot in the chest? His chest should've been facing the front.
Something doesn't sound right or this wasn't reported clearly (what else is new?)
I hope this was an accident because what's going through my mind isn't nice.

Also, I found the last line interesting:
.......urges patrons to be “sure to start looking early for ammo, bullets or powder for this season,” as it “looks like everything will be harder to find.”

Really? What does that have to do with this story? But aside from that, why will these things be 'harder to find'?


Mercer County, PA |


A boy, 7, has been killed at a Pennsylvania gun store, and police say a tragic misfire led to a fatal gunshot wound to the child’s chest.

The boy was killed in the gun store’s parking lot, and scant details about the way the scene unfolded have been released. The 7-year-old was strapped in a booster seat at the time of the presumably accidental shooting.




According to local news sources, the boy, 7, was killed in the gun store parking lot as his father backed out of a space at Twig’s Reloading Den, located at 8388 Sharon Mercer Road in East Lackawannock Township. A CBS affiliate in Pittsburgh reports what little is known about the fatal shooting:


“The boy was shot in the upper right chest while in a booster seat in a pickup truck parked at the shop … The boy’s father said he went inside the shop to sell a .9 mm hand gun and while he was backing out of his parking space, the gun went off.”

Nicole Howard witnessed the aftermath of the boy’s shooting death at the gun store, and she explains that the fatal incident was audible from her family’s adjacent business, Howard & Son Meatpacking. Howard recalls:


“There are lots and lot of flashing lights and lots of crime tape. There was a single shot, and then the police came.”

The boy’s gun store shooting occurred this morning at 10:54 AM, and the investigation into the tragedy is being handled by the Mercer County coroner as well as local police. A website for the gun store at which the 7-year-old was fatally shot urges patrons to be “sure to start looking early for ammo, bullets or powder for this season,” as it “looks like everything will be harder to find.”

Re: Boy, 7, Killed In Gun Store Parking Lot In Pennsylvania
u r confusing "booster seat" with infant-child seat. a booster seat is required by pa law for children under 10 i believe or also a weight requirement.it would b front facing and is like a seat cusion from a ball game with a padded bar that goes across the childs front chest.its designed to support the child n seatbelt. otherwise i guess the child ,in a crash,could slide outa the normal belt.
havent read all the story but my guess is the guy was probly checking to make sure it was unloaded b4 entering the store n it went off. gota admit as a parent thatguy has to feel like hell times 1000. cant even imagine nor do i want to.

This happened after he left the store.
Who leaves a store with a loaded gun and why?


About the booster seat: I still think it's odd. At age 7 I was practically driving. Well, not really but it said he was 'strapped in'.

I don't know why but I have a feeling this wasn't an accident. I hope and I PRAY I am wrong and just being cynical but I have way too many questions to feel comfortable with what I read.

Thanks for your explanation about the booster seat though. Much appreciated.

Someone exercising their second amendment right?

There might be other angles to this, but it could be as simple as a fumble with a shoulder holster.
Overstand, this isn't a sermon from the hill, but a 'Trespassers Will Be Shot' Sign.
