Woman was carrying a concealed gun in her purse
A two-year-old boy in an Idaho Walmart accidentally shot and killed a woman Tuesday, authorities said. Early reports of the incident said the woman was the toddler’s mother.
The woman, 29, was shopping in the Hayden, Idaho store when the boy reached into her purse and discharged the concealed weapon, the Associated Press reports. The store was closed following the shooting.
Kootenai County sheriff’s spokesman Stu Miller said the shooting was accidental, and that the woman, whose identity has not been released, had a concealed weapons permit.
