There are toys on the front steps of a home here where a 1-year-old boy was shot and killed Sunday afternoon.

Police say a 3-year-old accidentally pulled the trigger, striking Braylon Robinson, 1, once in the face.

“Don’t seem real,” said his cousin, Trashawn Robinson.

Relatives say the boy’s mother, Shanee Robinson, had agreed to watch a friend’s 3-year-old boy and 1-year-old girl for the day after the friend watched Braylon the night before.

They also say someone somehow stashed two guns beneath a couch in their home without anyone knowing. The family suspects who did it, however no one has been charged.

Neighbors say someone should serve time for Braylon’s death.

“That was a 1-year-old baby,” said neighbor Creta Muhammad. “What if it was your child, my child? It hurts.”
