A Las Vegas family is mourning after a toddler accidentally fatally shot himself at a caregiver’s home over the weekend.

Jaiangelis Stevenson, 2, fired the gun at himself in the bedroom of a home near Nellis Air Force Base around 6:30 p.m. Sunday evening, KLAS reported.

The boy was transported to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, the outlet explained.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is currently investigating the incident for possible abuse and neglect.

Stevenson was being watched by a family member while his mother was working when the shooting occurred, his aunt Paris Box told 8 News Now.

“We would actually call him ‘Blue’ because of his eyes,” she recalled of the youngster.

“He would be like ‘Hi Ti Ti’ and he would be walking around with his little popsicle.”

The family is working on accepting what happened, Box added.

“A child was shot with someone else’s gun and that is negligence, but I don’t know what happened,” she said.

“Because I know everyone’s heart involved, I don’t have hate in my heart I’m disappointed a little bit, but I know that was not meant to happen.”
