Toddler Shoots Pregnant Mother, Father

A three-year-old boy from New Mexico shot and wounded his parents on Saturday while reaching into his pregnant mother’s purse for her iPod, police say. The toddler fired one shot which hit his father in the right buttock. The bullet then went out of his hip and hit his mother, who is eight-months pregnant, in the arm. It occurred in a room at the America’s Best Value Inn. Another 2-year-old girl was present during the shooting. “If you are going to be a gun owner, you need to lock it up and keep it safe, especially around children,” said the Albuquerque police spokesman.
