Bronx 5-Year-old Accidentally Shoots Himself - Dad Arrested
A Bronx father is being held on $100,000 bail after police say his 5-year-old son accidentally shot himself in the arm. 
Denny Pantoja Sr. was arraigned Saturday night on charges of weapons possession and endangering the welfare of a child. 
Authorities say Denny Pantoja Jr. accidentally shot himself Friday inside their apartment at the St. Mary's Park Houses in Morrisania.
Police say Pantoja Sr. stashed the gun in a car before he took the wounded boy to the hospital. 

Sources say Pantoja Sr. first told police that his son had been shot in a robbery, but later admitted he heard the gun go off inside his home.
In New York chances are you can't get away with allowing your kid to shoot himself, but to make sure, Mr. Pantoja owned the gun illegally and lied to the police too.
