amira novitzke, reporter

A father in Chicago was being threatened by gangs so he wrapped a gun in pajama pants and places it on top of the refrigerator. He told his six year old grandson-son that the gun was not a toy and is was only meant for adults and then placed it back on top of the frig. About a week later, the boy shot and killed his three year old brother while playing cops and robbers. The grand-son does not even remember what happened. he thinks his brother is in the hospital sick.

The .32- Caliber Smith and Wesson Revolver gun was purchased off the streets and the father did not have a firearm owner’s identification card or carry a licence. Santiago’s bail out of jail is $75,000 and returned to court on Friday.
