The 5-year-old found a paintball gun and shot the 9-month-old in the head the mother called telling 911 what happened with the paintball gun and the 5-year-old. But when the cops got there they realize that the paintball gun was actually a 22-caliber magnum revolver. the 9-month-old baby didnโ€™t survive. Authorities say the gun belongs to a relative the baby was in a playpen when his brother found the gun lying on the bed.
