3-year-old dies after being shot in the head
NEW ORLEANS - Police say a 3-year-old New Orleans boy is dead after being shot in the head, possibly as he played with a gun.
Chief Deputy Superintendent Marlon Defillo says Brashaun Blue was found wounded in his home Tuesday morning in the Algiers section of the city. Blue was taken to University Hospital where he later died.
Defillo said a gun was found near Blue's body.
Defillo say a 22-year-old man spent the night at the house, but did not hear a gunshot.
He says the man went downstairs to answer the door about 8 a.m. and found the child wounded on the floor.
