Georgia father for not getting help when son shot himself

A Georgia father is being charged after he didn't get help when his four-year-old son shot himself.

Shawn Darin Smith, 26, was booked on Halloween at the DeKalb County Jail and charged with cruelty to children - deprivation of necessary sustenance.

Smith's four-year-old, who has not been named, took a bullet in an apartment on Bouldercrest Road back in February.

He told a social worker he’d shot himself while playing with a gun but his uncle, who took him to the hospital, claimed it was a drive-by shooting and that the child was known for making up stories, according to a police report.
