Flint police officers were dispatched to an apartment complex around 9 p.m. on Monday after 911 calls reported hearing gun shots. Inside the Atherton East Apartments, a man who was shot died shortly after the officers arrived. No witnesses have yet to come forward, and the investigation remains ongoing. If you have any details about this incident, please contact the Flint Police Department immediately.

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Flint is among one of the most violent cities in the entire country, especially concerning gun related injuries.
Did you know that gun-related injuries accounted for more than 6,500 children’s deaths in 2010? That’s almost 7 deaths per day among people 1 to 19 years of age. This year’s headlines were far too often filled with schoolchildren killed by other students using their parents’ guns.

How to avoid a gun accident:

To protect your kids, all weapons and ammunition must be locked in a specially designed gun safe or have a trigger lock at all times. Even some weapons called “toys” are dangerous, including BB guns, pellet guns, and air rifles. If your children must have them, always make sure they are used under the gaze of adult supervision.
