Per New York Post, Authorities say a man shot and killed himself in a South Carolina home after his 2-year-old son accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun.

Richland County Corner Gary Watts said both father and son died Wednesday at a Columbia home.

Watts said 2-year-old Kyree Myers’ mother called 911 after her son found the loaded gun and shot himself.

Columbia Police Chief Skip Holbrook said when officers arrived, 38-year-old Keon Myers had a gun and was threatening to kill himself, firing the fatal shot into his head after refusing to drop the weapon.

Police said they are still investigating if the father and son were killed with the same weapon and whether that gun was bought legally.
