One defendant involved in the 2017 non-fatal daycare shooting of two toddlers has pleaded guilty. 

On Monday, Timothy Eubanks pleaded guilty as charged to six counts of second degree child abuse following a September 2017 incident where one toddler at the home daycare got ahold of a gun and shot two other toddlers. 

The daycare was run by Timothy and his wife Samantha at their home on Harding Street in Dearborn, and was not licensed. 

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office alleges that Timothy Eubanks left two handguns unsecured in an upstairs bedroom. On September 27, around 10:19 a.m., Samantha Eubanks discovered her 3-year-old had shot a 3-year-old-boy in the face and another 3-year-old boy in the shoulder. She was running a home daycare and was watching six children at the time.

According to a release, Timothy will be sentenced on July 10 at 9 a.m. His wife Samantha's case is scheduled for trial on July 26 at 9 a.m.
