N.Y. boy, 10, shoots self with dad's police gun
MASSAPEQUA, New York — A 10-year-old boy shot himself in the head with his father's police gun while playing in the basement at his Long Island home, authorities said. He was hospitalized Monday on a life-support system.
The boy's father, Joseph Dunne, is an officer with the New York Police Department. He was at work when his son shot himself, neighbors said.
The NYPD referred questions about the officer and the shooting to Nassau County police, who didn't immediately release any other information.
