A 2-year-old Milwaukee, Wisconsin boy reportedly fatally shot his mother from the backseat of the car as she drove along a highway, sheriff’s officials said Wednesday, according to The Associated Press:
The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department said Patrice Price, 26, of Milwaukee, died at the scene Tuesday morning.
The child, who was sitting in the back seat, picked up a gun that slid out from under the driver’s seat and fired it through the front seat, striking Price, the department said in a statement, citing witness accounts. A .40-caliber gun was recovered from the floor of the back seat behind the driver, along with a security officer’s gun belt belonging to the victim’s boyfriend, sheriff’s officials said.
Price’s father, Andre, told The Associated Press that the car belongs to his daughter’s boyfriend.
Price’s 1-year-old son and mother were also both riding in the front passenger seat, the report says. The 2-year-old boy was not riding in a car seat in the back and it is unknown if he was wearing a seat belt.
