According to the police report, Ayden was playing with his younger brother in a room alone when the pair found a gun inside a dresser drawer. The three-year-old was reportedly handling it when it was fired, striking the other child in the chest.

“You have to be more careful,” Memphis mother Ranay Calhoun said.  “If y’all have little babies in the house it has to be where they can’t get to it, not even climbing on a chair or nothing.”
