Braylon Ken Yeng Houa Chang

Age 4

Roseville, Michigan

A gun left in his reach

He was a twin, a child of a Vietnamese family living in Michigan. His father came to visit them from Wisconsin. The father brought a gun.

His 8-year-old brother found the gun on a pool table in their home and showed it to the father, who then tossed it on his bed. Afterward, the father went to the bathroom, leaving his children unattended in the basement.

Braylon Ken Yeng Houa Chang, 4, died on Dec. 14, 2018 in Roseville, Michigan. One of his five siblings found the gun and accidentally shot him in the chest.
