A two-year-old boy was killed after his elder brother accidentally shot him with a pistol in Labangan, Zamboanga del Sur last weekend.

Samuel Binong succumbed to a gunshot wound in his forehead. He was accidentally shot by elder brother Jesrel, 6.

Police said the incident took place inside their house when the two brothers were playing.

It was learned that the elder brother opened the drawer of a table where their father kept the pistol gun.

Jesrel thought it was just a toy gun and played it with his younger brother.  He poked the gun on his brother and squeezed the trigger.

The gun went off hitting Samuel . Police said the incident occurred while the boys’ father was not around.    

Police brought Jesrel to DSWD for proper disposition while the case was under investigation.—  Noning R. Antonio
