    "Why would someone even be playing with a gun in a public setting or doing whatever," the victim's son, Vernon, questioned as he fought back tears.

    The security guard, a 52-year-old man, is cooperating with authorities, police said.

    A witness who works in the same building that the incident occured in says that the security guard, who according to him had only been working there for only three days, was carrying the gun when it went off.
