Authorities say Zaire Cameron was in a bedroom with two other children watching a movie. His parents were in another room when they heard the gunshot and found the toddler slumped over the end of the bed with the gun next to him.

WTMJ radio reports the boy's mother caught him playing with the .38 caliber gun a day before, punished him and put the gun back in the same drawer.
