Boy, 11, dies after accidentally shot by 4-year-old

LAKE CITY, Fla. - An 11-year-old boy died Tuesday after being accidentally shot Sunday at Cedar Park Apartments, according to the Lake City Police Department.

Police said a 4-year-old accidentally shot the boy.

"That's a tragedy. You have to think where are the parents in the situation. It is extremely sad. A child can't do anymore than a parent will allow them to do," said neighbor, Sierra Simone.

"I'm just shocked to hear it. I don't like tragedies like this. Just something people gotta' control," said another neighbor.

Police said their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the possession of a firearm by a minor is ongoing.
