A toddler in Indiana was filmed on CCTV waving a loaded gun around – even pointing it at his face at one point – and now his father is under arrest, per reports.

The child, whose age was not immediately available but was identified as a boy, was seen walking around while casually with the gun in his hands on the Beech Grove complexes’ Ring camera, TMZ reports.

CNN reports the child did pull the trigger, however there were no bullets in the chamber. There were 15 rounds in the magazine though.

The boy eventually goes inside one of the units, according to NBC News. No one was injured, thankfully.

Police responded to the apartment building after a neighbor call 911 to report a child with a gun.

The responding officers were actually being filmed for the Reelz network’s “On Patrol: Live,” while they encountered Shane E. Osborne, the boy’s father.
