Police: Girl, 2, killed in gun accident
by UPI

MILLTOWN, Ind. -- Police say a 2-year-old girl in Milltown, Ind., fatally shot herself with a gun owned by her stepfather, who serves as a reserve police officer.

State police officer Sgt. Chad Dick said Alexis Camp accidentally shot herself in the head after finding reserve Crawford County Sheriff's Department officer Jared Conrad's firearm, the Louisville (Ky.) Courier-Journal said Wednesday.

Dick said it appeared the young girl found and accidentally discharged the gun Monday in a bedroom shared by Conrad and his wife, Jessica.

Crime scene investigator Charlie McDaniel said the firearm had been stored in a location that allowed the child access to the loaded weapon.

Indiana law criminalizes any action that recklessly or intentionally allows a child access to a firearm. While there are certain exceptions to the state law, most incidents are felony violations.

Dick told the Courier-Journal that the fatal shooting is being investigated, adding all findings would be turned over to a county prosecutor.
