A Reno County, Kansas sheriff’s deputy’s 3-year-old son shot and killed himself on Friday morning with a gun belonging to a friend of the officer’s, the Wichita Eagle reported.
Officials said the child, Kaden Nagel, found the .40-caliber Glock handgun inside the deputy’s Hutchinson apartment at 8:15 a.m. His father, Deputy Andrew Nagel, was asleep at the time before being woken up by a gunshot.
Nagel administered first aid to his son upon hearing the shot, but the boy was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to the Hutchinson News, the gun did not belong to the deputy, but rather to a friend who did not know it was in the apartment. It is unclear whether the friend is Andrew Nagel’s roommate.

The View goes ‘insane’ trying to unravel GOP’s mind-bending impeachment conspiracies
Panelists on "The View" questioned their own sanity while trying to make sense of the theories House Republicans threw out to defend President Donald Trump against impeachment.
The four panelists, minus an absent Meghan McCain, were thoroughly confused by GOP arguments against the evidence presented in the first public hearing of the impeachment inquiry -- where Ukraine ambassador Bill Taylor revealed the president was overheard discussing investigations of Joe Biden with the EU ambassador by phone.
"Here's the craziest part of that call," said co-host Abby Huntsman. "It's an incredible breach of security."
Pelosi smacks down Fox News reporter’s question — and hilariously explains to Trump what ‘exculpatory’ means
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday smacked down Fox News reporter Chad Pergram after he insinuated that House Democrats seemed "excited" about the prospect of impeaching President Donald Trump.
During a press conference, Pergram asked Pelosi, "Why would the public not think that the House is dead set on a course to impeach the president when all of this milieu was going on?"
"All this milieu is a seeking of the truth," she replied. "It's called an inquiry."
Pelosi at this point turned to the camera and seemed to address Trump directly.
"And if the president has something that is exculpatory -- Mr. President, that means if you have anything that shows your innocence -- then he should make that known," she said. "And that's part of the inquiry. So far we haven't seen that."
