A South Carolina mom is demanding answers after her 3-year-old son was shot in the head and killed in what police are calling an "accidental shooting."


The boy, Aiden Martin, was with his father and visiting a trailer full of people on Saturday night.

Deputies are currently saying that the boy shot himself in the head.

"The father told deputies he was inside the trailer's living room when he heard a 'pop' approximately 10 to 15 feet away in the kitchen," according to a police report described by WCSC-TV. "The father looked in the kitchen and saw his son bleeding from the head, scooped him up and ran out of the trailer looking for someone to take them to the hospital."

The boy's mother, Arika Williams, is not buying it.

“We need justice, we need justice, there’s no way Aiden was in a house full of people, don’t nobody know what happened,” Williams said.

The father said he only knew one person in the trailer at the time of the incident and said a friend of his rents the trailer, the report states.

“This is a three-year-old, a little baby, a little baby," said Arika Williams. "He was supposed to start school this year. He can’t even start school. I will never be able to see my child again.”

The boy's father was asked to be examined to see if he had gun residue on his hands and passed it.
