Jebidiah D. Bishop

Age 4

Clinton, Missouri

4-year-old accidentally shoots himself

Most at his age either play with toy trucks or action figures. They also begin learning their ABCs and 123s. But he won’t be able to do anything beyond those early milestones because he found something that wasn’t a toy.

His mother found him on the kitchen floor and started giving him first aid, according to the police. He was then flown by helicopter to the nearest hospital in Kansas City, Missouri.

Jebidiah D. Bishop died from injuries he suffered after accidentally shooting himself in the head at his home in Clinton, Missouri, on November 6, 2018. He was 4 years old.
