(KMOV) – Friends and family of a three-year-old boy who shot and killed himself after finding his father’s gun a couple weeks ago are asking for the public’s help to preserve his memory.
Friends of the family have organized “Books for Daniel” for others to donate books in his honor.
Daniel Metz died on July 19 after accidentally shooting himself with his father’s handgun.
The boy's father, Ryan Metz, who's been an officer with the Maryland Heights Police Department for the last three years, was working at the time of the shooting and responded to the call of his son's death.
