New details are emerging in the hours leading up to the death of a 3-year-old Yuma boy, who died from a gunshot wound.
Court records show that the child's grandmother, who was with the child, 35-year-old Rachel Spry, told police she was under the influence of methamphetamine the night before her grandson's death.
Early Wednesday morning, Yuma police responded to a call from a third party who reported hearing a gunshot.
Police found a 3-year-old boy at his home in the 1200 block of S. 11th Ave. with a gunshot wound to his face.
Court records show that Spry had been staying with her daughter, who told Spry she did not want guns in the house.
Spry said she was packing up items Wednesday morning in the bathroom, which also has a laundry room, when she put her 9mm Keltec semi-auto handgun in a backpack on top of the clothes dryer.
Her grandson then came into the restroom, and Spry said she was aware that the boy had come in.
While she was kneeling down packing items under the sink, she heard a gun shot.
Spry told police she looked over and saw Darrien lying on the floor, bleeding from his nose, and she said no one else was in the restroom.
Police found Spry's backpack, which contained 0.25 grams of meth, a meth pipe, and a gun.
Now Spry faces charges that include reckless manslaughter. She is being held on a $500,000 bond awaiting her next court appearance next week.
