A seven-year-old boy was killed over the weekend when a handgun his father was trying to sell accidentally discharged in the parking lot of Twig’s Reloading Den, a gun store in East Lackawannock, Penn. 

Craig Loughrey was sitting in his booster seat in his father’s truck on Saturday morning when his father’s gun went off, hitting him in the chest.

A few minutes earlier, he and his dad, Joseph, had been inside Twig’s, unsuccessfully trying to sell a rifle and the 9mm handgun that would eventually kill Craig. Paramedics attempted to revive the seven-year-old, but were unsuccessful.

Very unfortunate for the entire family; the boy’s mother divorced his father didn’t like her son being around guns, especially since he had autism and might not be able to tell the difference between the super hero movies he watches and real life.
