A toddler around 2 or 3 years old, at a Michigan unlicensed home day care, in Dearborn, critically injured two 3-year-old boys with a gun shot. The incident occurred Wednesday, when the kid found the handgun in the home. Playing with the gun, the weapon “discharged,” hitting the two other children, who were hospitalized.
Dearborn police blocked off roads to help the ambulances get to the hospital quicker. Police believes toddler pulled the trigger. One of the victims, who suffered a shoulder injury, was expected to make a full recovery, while the other was in serious but stable condition Thursday. The day care is run by Tim and Samantha Eubanks at their home in the 3600 block of Harding Street on Dearborn's west side.
Police at the scene of incident
The strange aspect in the story is the fact that Daycare operator Samantha Eubanks, 31, declared she is not keeping guns in the house and “is totally against guns”, according to her sister too. However, police said Tim Eubanks is a hunter. When Dearborn police left the home Wednesday afternoon, they loaded what appeared to be hunting rifle cases and seized other evidence from the scene. Neighbors accused Tim and Samantha Eubanks of negligence, in their declarations. “It's a tragedy for our entire community,” Dearborn Police Chief Ron Haddad said. The officials will determine whether or not a crime was committed.
