CONWAY, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a 2-year-old boy died on Christmas Day after he grabbed a loaded gun left on a table in a home in Conway and shot himself.

Horry County Police said Wednesday they arrested the 30-year-old man who brought the gun into the home. Rondell Smith is charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Investigators say Sincere Smith found the gun on the table around 6 p.m. Tuesday and shot himself in the chest. He died on the way to the hospital.

It wasn’t known if Smith had an attorney.
