A Georgia man was shot dead in his home by his toddler son, according to Savannah Police Chief Roy Minter in a statement.

Savannah police officers responding to a shots fired 911 call found Dustin Walters, 25, inside his home suffering from a gunshot wound at about 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 5.

Walters was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Walters' toddler son apparently found the loaded handgun inside the home. Police said the boy is under 2 years old.

Walters is survived by his partner, Tori Pippin, and their only son, Mars, according to his obituary.

"As a parent, I cannot imagine what this family is going through or will continue to go through in the coming years," Chief Minter said.

He said parents should take steps to ensure the safety of their families by securing weapons.

Actress Janet Hubert blames Trump supporters for giving actor Alec Baldwin the loaded weapon that he used to accidentally kill a camerawoman.

Baldwin fired a prop gun that accidentally killed Halyna Hutchins and injured a director on the set of his low-budget independent film, "Rust," on Thursday.

A 24-year-old, non-unionized armorer with no experience, was given the assignment of handing the prop gun to Baldwin.

The Sante Fe, New Mexico Sheriff's Office investigated the shooting and no charges are expected.

However, Hubert took to Twitter on Wednesday to blame a Trump supporter for the tragic accident.

"Am I crazy, but my first thought was Baldwin was given this gun on purpose from someone to get back at him for his Trump impersonations? I have never seen prop guns sitting out on set EVER Then to photograph his pain and give it to the press! Hmmmm, so very heartless, TRUMPERS?"

Baldwin was a vocal Trump hater who frequently impersonated the former President on Saturday Night Live while Trump was in office.

Other Trump-hating conspiracy theorists on Hubert's timeline agreed with her.

Donald Trump Jr. is profiting from T-shirts referring to the fatal shooting on the set of low-budget film, Rust.

According to an affidavit released Sunday night, Baldwin, 66, was practicing firing into a camera when camerawoman Halyna Hutchins, 42, was shot in the chest on Thursday. She died at a local hospital.

Crew members say the camera was protected by a bulletproof shield -- but crew members weren't protected.

Trump Jr., the son of the former President Donald Trump, who is also a frequent critic of Baldwin, took to his Instagram Stories to promote a T-shirt that says: "Guns don't kill people, Alec Baldwin kills people."

Trump Jr. also photoshopped an image of Baldwin wearing the T-shirt which sells for $27.99 on his personal website.

Baldwin was a vocal critic of President Trump and he is notoriously anti-gun.

Vanity Fair magazine referred to Trump Jr. as "sentient pond scum" for profiting off of a "horrifying tragedy".

The magazine went on to say Trump Jr. has been "gunning to succeed his father as the biggest asshole on Twitter".

Twitter users didn't hold back either.

One Twitter user wrote:

"I hope the family of Halyna Hutchins sues Donald trump Jr for every penny he's worth because of the disgusting tee shirts he's selling to profit off of her death.

Utterly deplorable."

Another person tweeted:

"Don Jr. is all the proof you need that the douche doesn't fall far from the bag."

While a third person wrote:

"An innocent person was killed, but anything for a buck.

Donald Trump Jr. sells T-shirts mocking Alec Baldwin's fatal shooting."

Actor Alec Baldwin may face federal manslaughter charges after shooting and killing a cinematographer and injuring a director on the set of his low budget independent film, "Rust."

Chicago-based attorney Andrew Stoltmann believes Baldwin "needs to start thinking like a potential defendant instead of just somebody who made a tragic mistake."

"I'm certainly not saying he's going to be charged," Stoltman told Fox News, "but what I am saying is anytime somebody shoots another human being – even on accident, even in self-defense – the police and eventually prosecutors look very, very carefully at what happened.”

According to an affidavit released Sunday night, Baldwin, 66, was practicing firing into a camera when camerawoman Halyna Hutchins was shot in the chest on Thursday.

The bullet went through Hutchins and struck director Joel Souza in the clavicle. Hutchins, 42, was pronounced dead at a hospital. Souza was treated and released from a hospital the same day.

A sheriff's investigation is ongoing, but no charges are expected to be filed against Baldwin.

However, federal prosecutors are considering filing charges against the volatile actor who reportedly angered unionized crew members earlier in the day.

The crew members say they walked off the set because of poor working conditions and gun safety issues.

They crew was fired and replaced by non-union workers. One of those non-union workers, a 24-year-old woman with no experience, was given the assignment of preparing a prop gun for Baldwin.

It was revealed in the affidavit that some crew members used the same gun for target practice on the desert set earlier.

Investigators say Baldwin and his crew violated the 1st rule of gun safety: never point a gun at someone. Always assume the gun is loaded.

There's a difference between a "prop gun" and a real firearm -- and the crew members knew the gun was real.

At least one scripted television series, ABC's cop show "The Rookie," has banned the use of real guns on the set going forward.

Whether Baldwin is charged or not, his acting career is over.

Hollywood insiders say the low budget movie he was filming at the time of the incident will never see the light of day.

There is an update in the tragic story of a Florida mom who was fatally shot by her toddler while on a Zoom call.

On August 11, Shamaya Lynn, 21, was on a Zoom call with co-workers when they heard a loud bang and she fell backwards off her seat. A co-worker who called 911 said she saw Lynn's toddler crying behind her.

First responders arrived at the apartment off Wymore Road in Altamonte Springs, and found Lynn unresponsive with a single gunshot wound to the head. Investigators determined that her 2-year-old son shot her with an unsecured gun.

On Oct. 7, the boy's father, Veondre Avery, 22, was arrested and charged with leaving an unsecured gun in the child's Paw Patrol backpack.

Avery appeared in court on Wednesday, Oct. 13, to face charges of manslaughter, neglect, and failure to secure a weapon. He is being held without bond in the Seminole County Jail, Yahoo! News reports.

Avery's next court date is set for November 23.

Avery, who lived with Lynn and their son, was arrested because the gun belonged to him and he left it loaded and without the safety on, police say.

According to advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety, deaths involving children have increased 31 percent in the US.

128 deaths were reported from unintentional shootings by children between March and December 2020.

A Florida woman was accidentally shot in the head by her 2-year-old son while she was on a Zoom work call.

Shamaya Lynn, 21, was on a Zoom call with co-workers Wednesday when they heard a loud bang. They watched as Lynn fell backward in her chair and saw the toddler standing behind her.

A co-worker called 911 to conduct a welfare check on Lynn at the Oaks of Spring Valley apartments off Wymore Road in Altamonte Springs.

First responders found Lynn, 21, dead from a gunshot wound to the back of the head, according to a police statement.

"Investigators determined that the injury was caused by a toddler who found a loaded handgun, which was left unsecured by an adult in the apartment," the statement said.

"To anyone and everyone tuning into this story if you don't have a firearm please keep it locked and secured this incident could be avoided," Officer Roberto Ruiz Jr. said.

WESH reported that the unsecured weapon belonged to the child's father. Another infant was in the home at the time. Neither child was injured. The children are now in the custody of relatives.

Detectives are working with the Seminole County State's Attorney's Office to determine if the gun's owner will face charges.

The feds are investigating an accidental shooting that wounded three people at a Breonna Taylor protest in Louisville, Kentucky.

The three victims were members of a Black paramilitary group who call themselves NFAC, an acronym for "Not F***ing Around Coalition."

The incident happened when a female trainee accidentally discharged her assault rifle into the crowd of marchers who were protesting the police murder of Breonna Taylor in Baxter Park on Saturday.

The victims were transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The pro-gun paramilitary group is led by John "Grandmaster Jay" Johnson (pictured center), who said, "We're dealing with humans who make mistakes."

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron's office is heading up the investigation into the accidental discharge of an assault rifle.

Taylor was shot 8 times and killed in March when three plainclothes officers served a no-knock warrant at her home in search of a drug suspect who was already in custody.

One of the officers was fired this year, but protesters say they will not rest until all three are terminated.

In an unrelated incident, a protester was shot and wounded when another protester fired on a car as it drove through a crowd of demonstrators on Interstate 225 in the Denver suburb of Aurora on Saturday.

Police said a protester fired a weapon at the car, but missed and struck at least one person who was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Initial reports stated two people were shot.

The protesters were trying to draw attention to the death of Elijah McClain, a Black man who was stopped by police after a 911 caller reported him as suspicious in August 2019.

McClain fell unconscious after a cop placed him in a chokehold and a paramedic injected him with 500 milligrams of the sedative ketamine. He was later declared brain dead and taken off life support.
