A Ohio man is being held without bond after he posted a photo on Facebook of himself holding his baby daughter and a BB gun.
Fox 19 reports 22-year-old Domonic Gaines was arrested and charged with child endangerment.
Police initially believed Gaines was holding a handgun in the photo, along with his 1-year-old daughter Paradise. However, they later determined the gun was a BB gun found in Gaines’ home.
Authorities tell Fox 19 the close proximity of the child to the gun in the photo is cause for concern.
“It’s really been blown out of proportion,” Gaines’ father, Wilson Dykes, told Fox 19.
Dykes says he believes the child’s maternal grandmother alerted authorities to the photo.
