The child's grandmother told police she was putting away groceries when she heard a "very loud bang." She then reportedly went outside to find her 4-year-old grandson laying on the ground in front of the house, bleeding from a gunshot wound to the head.
Police say the woman carried the victim inside in an attempt to provide aid. Officers arrived to find the injured child and a Taurus .25 handgun in the dining room.
The grandmother told a 911 dispatcher she did no know where her grandson got the gun from.
Officials say Scott live in North Charleston, and was visiting family in Summerville at the time of the accidental shooting.
Scott was flown to MUSC, where he was later pronounced dead.
