A 4-year-old playing with a gun at a pawn shop in Alaska fired a round into the ceiling. Police in Fairbanks say the child was in the shop with his dad and while the father was talking to a store employee, the toddler was playing with another employee's one-year-old. The older boy's father says he heard a loud bang and turned to see his son with a silver pistol in his hands. That revolver belonged to another employee at the store. No one was hurt.
