“It is quite significant. If you have guns at home, make sure they’re locked up. It doesn’t matter whether you have small children; they get into everything “Crystal Lyons, a Dolton resident, agreed.

“It only takes a second to open it, thread it through the barrel, bring it back around, put it in, and lock it,” Holmes continued. “If you’re going to leave it, make sure it’s safe.”

Romell Watson, the boy’s father, who was also present at the time of the shooting, was immediately arrested and later charged with a misdemeanor firearms offense, according to WLS.
