Braylon Robinson, 1, was killed by a gunshot fired by another child.

Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams tells WKYC they believe a 3-year-old boy fired the shot.

"A 3-year-old cannot be held accountable for a tragedy like this," said Williams. "There has to be adults that either supplied the weapons' charge, had charge of the weapons or knew the weapons were there and didn't do anything to safeguard it, so people will be held accountable for this tragedy."

Neighbors and police agree a lesson must come out of this tragedy.

"That done it for me, I can't stress the importance of being more consciously aware of gun safety especially around children. It's an unfortunate situation," said neighbor Jalil Muhammad.
