4-year-old shoots babysitter

Looks like these parents won’t be going out to the movies again.

Police say a 4-year-old boy shot his babysitter Sunday because the 17-year-old stepped on his foot.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the boy “retrieved a shell from a drawer in a back bedroom, grabbed a 20-gauge single-shot shotgun from a closet and loaded the weapon … returned to the living room, and in front of another 17-year-old boy and other children, shot [Nathan] Beavers.”

Beavers was treated for wounds from the birdshot, the paper says. The blast also injured another Jackson County, Ohio, teen, according to the Associated Press.
