GRANBURY, Texas (WJW) — Police in Texas are investigating an accidental shooting involving a two-year-old child.
The Granbury Police Department on Facebook said officers responded Wednesday morning to a Walmart for a report of a shooting.
Based on statements from witnesses and evidence at the scene, police said it appears the two-year-old and a one-year-old were inside a car. The children’s mother and father were both standing outside of the vehicle.
According to police, the two-year-old picked up a gun which was said to be concealed between the seat and the center console, and the gun discharged one time.
Police said the bullet went through the one-year-old’s leg, and through the mother’s arm and into her side.
The infant’s injury is not believed to be life-threatening; the mother’s injury is said to potentially be more serious.
Her condition is not known at this time.
