In case you missed it on last night's TV news: a 2-year-old shot a 3 4-year-old yesterday in a home day care facility run by the 2-year-old's grandmother on the South Side. No, it wasn't a fight -- the kids found the gun, believed to have been left by the younger boy's 21-year-old uncle, and it went off while they played with it. (Thanks for the edit, Jen)
