Grandfather accidentally shot to death by 4-year-old grandson

A North Carolina man died Sunday after his 4-year-old grandson accidentally shot him.

According to WAVY, the boy and his grandfather, identified as Danny Patrick, 57, were reportedly shooting a rifle Sunday in a rural part of Perquimans County. At some point, the boy fired a shot, striking his grandfather.

After the shooting, the 4-year-old walked to a nearby home, knocked on a door and told the people inside that his grandfather was dead.

The residents called 911 and first responders pronounced Patrick dead at the scene.

A neighbor told reporters she had seen Patrick playing with his grandson just hours before.

“This is really tragic,” said Margaret Mullen, the victim’s neighbor. “I’m really sorry to hear that.”
