SOUTH CAROLINA - A 2-year-old South Carolina boy died after shooting himself at a home.

Investigators said the boy was in a home near Conway Christmas night when he grabbed the gun off a table and pulled the trigger.

Police charged 30-year-old Rondell Smith with involuntary manslaughter.

They said he brought the gun into the home.
