I don't know if you believe in a higher power or not, but positive thoughts cannot hurt...

Our neighbor's five year old son found the family's .22 and shot himself in the head this past pm. He is fighting for his life in a Sioux Falls hospital.

I am heartsick...

My goodness, that is horrible. I have 3 small children, and can't personally imagine how you'd feel as a parent in this situation.

I will indeed pray for this little boy.

Wow. It's a shame the parents didn't have the forethought to put the gun out of reach for such a small child.

My prayers definitely go out to them.

Prayers work. This child will pull through.

And hopefully it sends a message about safety to others.

The boy died about an hour ago...

I do want to clarify my earlier statements. I incorrectly said that he had shot himself (that was what we were first told). I have since talked to the boy's mother, and he was shot by his older sibling who was playing with the gun outside. Our church, our community, and our neighborhood has suffered a great loss.

One of my students (and church member) just came by my office and told me she had been playing with Tyler last Sunday in the nursery. It was hard to listen to her.

I know this isn't a world event. But in our little piece of the world it is heartwrenching.

That's even worse, as if that were possible. Now the older child carries that for life. It's terrible all around. We'll pray for the family and your community.

Prayers for the family and the community. An extra prayer for the older sibling who was involved, this will affect the rest of their life.

This is tragic. This is a horrific reminder to store our guns safely and educate our children on gun safety. I'm so sorry for the family, I can't even imagine the pain they're going through.

O&S, I didn't hear about this till today. If a fund is set up to help with costs let me know. Vermillion is a great town and hopefully the family will get the support they need. I feel terrible for the sibling. I can't imagine going thru life with this on his shoulders.

Take this as a lesson folks, lock up your guns. Even the best kids do stupid things some times.

God help that family.

That's a nightmare scenario. It's horrific for everyone involved. My sympathies.
