A 3-year-old boy from Milwaukee died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in an accident Friday.

A’Kai Stilo got hold of the gun before 4:40 a.m. that morning and was immediately rushed to Children’s Wisconsin, where he was pronounced dead.

A 28-year-old woman tied to the incident has been arrested. The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s office has yet to announce charges against her as of this report.

NEW YORK BILL WOULD REQUIRE SOCIAL MEDIA HISTORY TO OBTAIN GUN CARRY PERMIT

“I am disturbed by all gun deaths in Milwaukee, but when the victim is a 3-yr-old, I am horrified,” Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson tweeted Friday. “There are too many guns in the hands of people who should not have them. All weapons must be locked and secured in a home.”

The Milwaukee Police Department also reminded the public to keep guns locked away for safety following the shooting. The department offers free gun locks at dozens of locations.

“It’s available for free on every fire truck and paramedic unit. No questions asked,” Fire Chief Aaron Lipski said.
