Redford Township news, Michigan news.

A Michigan couple is being held on a $25,000 bond and charged with second-degree child abuse after their 4-year-old son opened fire at his older sister last month causing her brain bleeding and a need for several stitches.

The incident took place at the children’s Redford Township house on July 6 at about 1:30 a.m. when the boy who was holding a gun discharged it at his 5-year-old sister, Karina Norwood. She was rushed to a local hospital and is now in a stable condition.

In an interview, the kids’ mom, Melissa Kiser, said that she and their father, Jonclaude Norwood Sr. thought the weapon that belonged to a family member was properly hidden somewhere in the home but their children sadly managed to find it: “I’m hurting down inside because of what happened to my baby,” she stated.
