Tampa police have arrested a 14-year-old boy for firing the bullet that went through the back of one child’s head and struck another.

“This is a tragic reminder of the fact that it is essential for gun owners to practice safe storage of firearms,” said interim Tampa Police Chief Lee Bercaw. “Had these juveniles not had easy access to guns in the home, a young man would still be alive today. It is critical for parents, guardians and gun owners to ensure that firearms are stored in a place that is inaccessible to children, out of sight and locked at all times.”
