Father charged after 2-year-old fatally shoots herself

Posted: October 22, 2013 in Current Event

2-year-old girl, Samarri Tyana Beauford hot herself in Fayetteville, North Carolina, over the weekend, and the toddler’s father faces involuntary manslaughter charges, police said. Melvin Andre Clark Jr., 19, who was arrested Sunday, also was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, Fayetteville police spokesman Lt. Todd Joyce said. She was playing in the living room of the home where she lived with her aunt and grandmother Saturday when she found a loaded .22-caliber pistol that police say Clark had left under the couch, Joyce said. The toddler was taken about 12:30 p.m. to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, where she died. Melvin Clark, 19, was arrested Sunday. Clark was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center on a $50,000 secured bond, Joyce said. He appeared in court Monday, and his case was continued until November 7. Thats a shame that she couldn’t live her life all because her parents weren’t mindful of where they placed the weapon at. Read more about this tragedy in the tag section of my blog.
