A 2-year old boy is dead, after shooting himself in the head yesterday. Lake Ozark Police Chief Mark Maples says the toddler got a chair and used it reach into his parents bedroom closet where they kept a handgun. Police say he got his hands on the weapon and ended up shooting himself in the head. The child and his mother were alone in their home on Frudeger Road, when it happened. Police and EMT’s responded. It was too late. Results of an autopsy are expected sometime next week. The county prosecutor will also need time to consider formal charges. The boy was the youngest of 4 children.
