April 15. 2017

13-year-old Malachi Hemphill of Forest Park, Georgia, was on the social networking website Instagram this week, using its live feature, when he accidentally shot and killed himself, while showing off a gun to his viewers. Hemphill's friends who saw the video on Instagram Live immediately went to his home, where his distraught family had broken down his bedroom door after hearing a loud bang.

Hemphill's family found him unconscious in a pool of blood. They immediately called emergency services. Hemphill was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Authorities are attempting to ascertain how Hemphill obtained the gun. Teens sometimes have a fascination with guns, not truly realizing how dangerous they are in a number of ways.

Hemphill's devastated mother Shaniqua Stephens is in shock at what transpired, stating he was a talented boy that did well in school. Stephens stated in response to her son's tragic passing, "This is just a pain that will never go away. He was my only son. He was only 13 and the thought of me seeing him on the floor will never leave my brain."

Hemphill's death is a tragic accident that highlights the dangers of guns, which can wreak havoc. Every year, approximately 30,000 Americans die in gun related incidents. My condolences to Hemphill's family and friends.
