Police: Boy, 3, picks up Glock and kills himself in Philly By MARYCLAIRE DALE The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA - A 3-year-old boy picked up a Glock .45 semiautomatic handgun in an upstairs bedroom Sunday and fatally shot himself in the face, Philadelphia police said. Tylib Bailey-Henderson died less than a half hour later at St. Christopher's Hospital. Family members told police the gun was "put up," but it was not in a locked cabinet, detectives said. The gun is registered to the mother's boyfriend. He lives in the home in the city's Hunting Park section, while the woman and her children often stayed there, Homicide Sgt. Bob Wilkins said. The adults and Tylib's 9-year-old brother were elsewhere on the second floor when the shooting occurred in a front bedroom at 1 p.m., Wilkins said. "All four were upstairs, as far as I know," Wilkins said. No charges were immediately filed and police did not identify the adults. The Glock .45, a weapon frequently used by law enforcement agencies, typically weighs 19 to 26 ounces unloaded. The model does not have an external safety. Tylib turned 3 in July. He shot himself just above the lip, Wilkins said. The death comes as Philadelphia wrestles with a rash of gun violence that has taken numerous young lives, including that of a 5 year-old girl, Casha'e Rivers, who was shot and killed last month as she rode in the back seat of a car. Rivers' mother joined hundreds of Philadelphians in Harrisburg two days later to lobby state lawmakers for gun-control measures such a limit of one handgun purchase a month. "No one who has any conscience can sit by and not be affected when a 5 year-old child is killed, when a 9-year-old is shot going to school," Philadelphia Police Commissioner Sylvester Johnson recently told The Associated Press. He also lamented that federal lawmakers have not tackled the problem. "It doesn't seem like Congress or the Senate recognize we've got 30,000 people a year being killed by handguns," Johnson said. "As long as they don't take it seriously, it's never going to be resolved.
