U.S. boy shot dead as uncle showed off the laser sight on his handgun
An 11-year-old boy from New Jersey was shot dead on Saturday when his uncle, who was showing off a handgun, pointed its laser at the child's head.
Hunter Pedersen, pictured left, and with his dad, Robert, right, had been visiting his grandparents' house at a gated community in Delaware, when he was shot above the eye by Chad Olm. Olm, inset, who lives in the basement of the grandparents' home, had been showing the schoolboy and his own son his collection of guns.
