Dad charged with intentionally shooting toddler son in face with shotgun


A Michigan father intentionally shot his 2-year-old son in the face during a heated argument with the boy’s mother last Tuesday, prosecutors said.

Michael Christopher Glance, 32, faces multiple felony charges in connection with the April 16 shooting of his son, Ryker Glance, who survived the incident.

Jackson County Chief Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Kati Rezmierski said Glance got into an argument with the boy’s mother, Nicole McCarthy, in their Blackman Township home.

Glance allegedly held a pistol to the boy’s temple and pulled the trigger, but it malfunctioned, reported.

The mother took the boy to the car and strapped him in a seat, the report said. Glance came out of the house with a shotgun and allegedly fired the weapon, blowing half his son’s face off, according to the report.
