Evil dad ‘shot toddler son, 2, in the face with shotgun in front of horrified mum’

AN evil dad shot his own two-year-old son in the face in front of the boy’s horrified mum during a blazing row with her, authorities say.

Michael Glance, 32, is accused of trying to murder toddler Ryker Glance as he sat strapped in his mum’s car outside their home in Blackman Township, Michigan last Tuesday.

Glance got into an argument with the boy’s mum Nicole McCarthy before brandishing a pistol and holding it to the boy’s head, prosecutors claim.

He then tried to fire the gun at the helpless boy but it malfunctioned when he pulled the trigger, mlive.com reported.

Little Ryker’s terrified mum managed to grab him and put him in the back of her car.

But before she could drive off, Glance is said to have reappeared from the house with a shotgun.

He then fired the weapon at the boy – blowing half his son’s face off, according to a harrowing report by prosecutor Kati Rezmierski.

The boy was rushed to hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Glance was arrested and charged with three counts of assault with intent to murder and firearms charges.

He is being held on a $10million (£7.7m) bail and will face District Judge Michael Klaeren on May 1 for a preliminary examination, WILX reported.
