A toddler shot and critically wounded his mother in Norwalk Wednesday with a shotgun left sitting in the backseat of the family car, police said.
According to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, the woman was shot at about 3:30 p.m. in the 14600 block of Dinard Street. Officers were called to the scene where they found a woman suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper torso, said Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez .
“Preliminary information gathered at the scene revealed that the female’s three children were in the backseat of the vehicle when one of the children accessed an unsecured shotgun and shot her through the back of the seat,” Navarro-Suarez said.
The mother was sitting in the driver’s seat when her son, who is younger than 4 years old, shot her, Navarro-Suarez said. The woman was rushed to a hospital, where her condition was later upgraded to fair, the deputy said.
“The three children in the backseat, another female adult and a young child who sat in the front passenger seat were not injured,” according to Navarro-Suarez.
I don’t know, I’m not a gun owner, but seriously how in the hell does anybody think that it is a good idea to store a shotgun in a car filled with young children?
Do they think they are in a MadMax movie or something?
I actually don’t even care about the mother who was shot, she is almost too fucking stupid to live.
But I do worry about the psychological effects it has on a toddler to cause their toddler when their actions cause such a terrible injury to their mommy.
The mother should lose custody of her children, period.
And if she was not the person who placed the shotgun in the car that person should be arrested for reckless endangerment.
