A 3-year-old boy, Manal Abdelaziz, has died after accidentally shooting himself with a handgun he found behind the counter of his father's Lumberton, North Carolina, convenience store. Police said that officers were called to the store around 11 a.m. Sunday. The boy's father Manal Abdelaziz told WMBF;
'I was talking to [a male customer], business and different things. All we heard was something happening and I looked and, oh my god, my son is on the floor…Always keep the gun away from here. Hide it under a t-shirt, put it in a higher place. At that time it wasn’t there. It was in the wrong place,” he added.
