COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- A South Carolina sheriff says a father told deputies he was trying to make sure a gun was safe when accidentally fired the weapon, killing his 2-year-old daughter and wounding her 4-year-old sister. Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said in a news release Friday that the man also shot himself in the hand. Richland County Coroner Gary Watts says Heaven Miller died from a gunshot to her upper body. Lott says the shooting at a Columbia home around 6:30 p.m. Thursday appears to be an accident, but his deputies are continuing to investigate.
