by Staff

4-year-old boy shoots mom. A 4-year-old boy playing with a semi-automatic shotgun in Washington State accidentally shot and wounded his mother, police said.

The 23-year-old woman was being treated at Tacoma General Hospital after Monday's shooting, The Seattle Times reported. Scott Wilson, a spokesman for the Kitsap County sheriff said the wounds were caused by birdshot, the Kitsap Sun said.

Investigators say the boy was given a shotgun cartridge by his father, who was not home when his girlfriend was shot, the Sun said. He was playing with it and loaded it into the shotgun while his mother was on the phone with her back to him.

Wilson said the father apparently gave the boy the cartridge because he was interested in guns. Now he is "kicking himself" say reports(c) UPI
