(Louisville, KY) - Governor Matt Bevin is tying the shooting of one child by another child to teacher sickouts in March.
Bevin made the comments Thursday at a Rotary Club event in Louisville.
He was referring to a March 12th incident when a seven-year-old girl was accidentally shot by her eleven-year-old brother while the two were unsupervised during a sickout day.
Reports say the children's uncle had guardianship of them and was outside the home doing work when the shooting happened.
