Hunter, 26, has been charged with accessory to child abuse and possession of a weapon by a previous offender.
The Post has more on this story:

“(Paris) said she didn’t know what happened and who had fired the gunshot,” the statement reports.

Paris purchased a gun in February which she described as a “black .40-caliber Taurus.” The statement said that Paris told police she usually kept the gun in the living room behind the couch, in a case and inside a bag.

Hunter and Paris have been released on $50,000 bond each. They are scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 10.
