Authorities say a 3-year-old Florida boy has died after shooting himself with a gun he found in his uncle's backpack.
The shooting happened Tuesday night in a bedroom Jadarrius Speights shared with his uncle at an apartment complex in Tampa. Authorities say the uncle, 29-year-old Jeffrey D. Walker, has been charged with culpable negligence.
It wasn't immediately clear whether Walker had an attorney. His phone number was not listed and jail records didn't give a lawyer for him.
Police say he has a concealed weapons permit.
Hillsborough County sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter says the uncle was not in the room when the shooting happened, but the child's parents were there. The boy was taken to a hospital where he died.
AOL Inc. said Wednesday that its first-quarter net income jumped 23 percent, helped by an increase in global advertising revenue.
But the profit fell short of Wall Street predictions and AOL shares slumped nearly 10 percent in early trading.
The New York-based internet company earned $25.9 million, or 32 cents per share, for the three months ended March 31, up from $21.1 million, or 22 cents per share, in the same quarter of 2012. Excluding one-time items, the company said it posted an adjusted profit of 41 cents per share.
Revenue rose 2 percent to $583.3 million from $529.4 million.
Analysts, on average, expected earnings of 44 cents per share on $542.6 million in revenue, according to FactSet.
AOL split from Time Warner Inc. in 2009 and has been trying to increase revenue ever since by shedding unprofitable businesses and buying popular sites such as the Huffington Post and the technology blog TechCrunch.
The company said its advertising revenue increased 9 percent to $359.2 million, helped by higher display and search revenue, but that was mostly offset by a 9 percent drop in subscription revenue to $165.8 million.
Shares of AOL, based in New York, fell $4 to $37.42.
A House panel has approved legislation that would greatly curtail when veterans deemed mentally incompetent are reported to the FBI's gun-check registry.
The move to winnow what records get placed into the database comes even as both sides of the gun-control debate have called for strengthening the background-check system.
Currently, the Department of Veterans Affairs automatically submits the names to the FBI's database of those veterans who are deemed unable to handle their own financial affairs and have a fiduciary appointed to administer their benefits.
But the House Committee on Veterans Affairs approved legislation requiring a judge's order before a veteran's name is submitted to the database. Lawmakers said veterans who are not a threat to harm themselves or others should not be denied a constitutional right to buy and possess guns.
