A North Carolina grandfather was shot by his 3-year-old grandson on Thursday.
Nicholas Cardillo III, 46, was in the shower when he heard a noise and found his grandson holding his .380-caliber handgun, reports WXII.
Deputies said Cardillo asked the boy to put the gun down and that is when the gun was fired by the child.
Cardillo had removed the gun from his clothing and laid it down when he arrived home. The magazine was unloaded but one round was left in the chamber, reports WITN.
Cardillo was treated for a non-life-threatening neck wound at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
Reports claim the shooting was accidental.
The investigation is ongoing.
