A South Carolina man has been arrested for giving a gun to a three-year-old and then ordering him to go after another man who was killed when the firearm discharged.

Details are still sketchy as to why 31-year-old Monted Davis gave a gun to a three-year-old child and then ordered him to chase (and possibly shoot) another man.

The victim was 24-year-old Timothy Raheem Johnson who was shot dead when the toddler pulled the trigger of what is being described as a stolen handgun.
