Terribly sad.

However, absolutely no information on where the gun involved came from...
So either the child got it from home and carried it with him all the way to the day care, or there was a gun laying around at the day care.

Unless it was in the day care yard?

He was at his babysitter's home. A county sheriff’s office recruit also lives at the same residence, but was not home at the time of the incident. The firearm was not a service weapon.
