Boy, 2, kills himself with grandma's Glock pistol

A South Carolina boy shot and killed himself with a Glock pistol he found in his grandmother's purse.

The Greenville News reports that Kayden Suber, 2, shot himself on Thursday.

His grandmother had left her purse on her bed, the newspaper reported, with her teal-colored Glock inside.

Seconds later, Kayden shot himself in the face. The boy's grandfather told the Greenville News that they plan to share their story with gun safety instructions as a warning to others.

The grandparents told the newspaper they were "probably one of the safest around as far as weapons." They are both concealed carry holders.

Fox Carolina reported that the coroner ruled his death an accident.

The family has a GoFundMe to pay for expenses.
