 The latest shooting came just days after a North Carolina father was killed after his 2-year-old son accidentally shot him while he was eating dinner.

Markovia Durham, 29, and his son were visiting the apartment of the boy’s grandmother in the city of Gastonia, near Charlotte, on Sunday when the accident happened at around 8.45pm.

The boy – who has not been named by officials – picked the gun up thinking it was a toy, and shot him in the back, the grandmother Phyllis Holland told Fox 46  

Holland added that Durham recently purchased the gun.

Durham was pronounced dead after emergency services arrived at Holland’s apartment complex at around 9.30pm.

Family members have also been questioned by the Department of Social Services about the incident. 

Holland said that the boy still does not fully understand the circumstances of the shooting as he continues to ask for his father.

She said: ‘He want his Dada. He’s only a 2-year-old. He doesn’t understand.’ 

 In February, a 25-year-old mother was shot dead in North Carolina after one of her five kids found a pistol inside her purse.

And in April, a toddler in Houston discovered an unlocked gun and killed his eight-month-old baby brother.
