What's the article's definition of a child? Is it reasonable, say age 10, or, like Brady, age 23?
From CDC WISQARS, in 4 year brackets to age 14. See attachment for table.

Table in first post is unintentional/accidents. This table is homicides. Remember, homicides does not automatically equal murder.
Forgot to add, data is 2005, which is the most current CDC is releasing.
