JACKSON, Ohio (Jan. 5) - Police say a 4-year-old boy in southern Ohio shot his baby sitter because the sitter accidentally stepped on his foot.
Police said 18-year-old Nathan Beavers and several other teenagers were baby-sitting several young children in a mobile home in Jackson on Sunday when the shooting occurred.
Witnesses told police the 4-year-old retrieved the shotgun from a bedroom closet and shot Beavers. Police said the child was angry because Beavers accidentally stepped on his foot.
Beavers was hospitalized with minor pellet wounds to his arm and side.
Police say another teen was also injured with shotgun pellets.
Jackson County Sheriff John Shashteen said authorities are investigating the shooting. The child has not been charged.

4 YEARS OLD with access to a gun. I do no know why some
parents make it so easy for CHILDREN to get hold of weapons
Says alot about the sitter.
I smell a rat.
Yes, IC. I agree.   A 4 year old might be able to shoot one person, but not a second teenager without being restrained. Just my opinion.
The story says "another teen was also injured with shotgun pellets". That means hit by some of the pellets from the single shot. If you throw a handful of, say, peanuts, they will not land in a neat little pile. They will spread out as they travel.
