Michael Logan, 26, was scheduled Thursday at the Clark County Detention Center on counts of involuntary manslaughter, child abuse and overlook, and a forbidden person owning a weapon, jail logs reveal.

Officers responded about 11:50 a.m. Wednesday to a house in the 3900 block of Nellis Boulevard, near Nellis Flying Force Base, where they discovered the gravely injured young boy, police stated. The child died at the scene.

The young boy and four community children were playing in a bed room when the weapon fired, striking the toddler in the forehead, police said. The other kids were believed to be below 12, cops stated.

The victim’s mother, who remained in the house, went to the space, and she and a next-door neighbor performed CPR, cops said.

Lt. Ray Spencer said it was possible among the kids brought the gun to the room, where police discovered the gun and a toy gun.

“For moms and dads, you have to ensure exactly what’s being brought inside your house with other kids,” Spencer stated. “This is an awful example of when children are playing with genuine weapons, what can occur.”

Further details on the investigation were not available today.

Logan was being held without bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday, prison records show.
