In the United States, a three-year-old accidentally shot and killed his own mother while playing with a firearm. The police reported this.

 

The drama occurred Saturday night in the parking lot of a supermarket in Dolton, a suburb of Chicago. The toddler was in his child seat in the back of the car, and his parents were in the front. Somehow the little boy got his hands on his father’s gun. “He started playing with it and at one point pulled the trigger,” said local police chief Robert Collins.

The child’s mother, 22-year-old Daejah Bennett, was shot in the back of the head. She was rushed to a Chicago hospital, where she was eventually pronounced dead. The father was arrested. Collins said it would be determined whether he had a license for the weapon and whether he should be prosecuted.

Every year, according to the organization Everytown For Gun Safety, hundreds of children in the US accidentally set off a firearm after getting hold of the unsecured, loaded guns tucked into wardrobes, bedside tables, backpacks, handbags, or simply lying around.

The organization estimates that these “accidental shootings” by minors cause an average of 350 deaths each year, and advocates for better control over firearms, such as requiring weapons to be kept in secure safes.
