Randall Simmons was showing his handgun to the 4-year-old and another child while in his SUV. Simmons then placed the gun in the glove compartment and left the vehicle.

The 4-year-old then retreived the gun and accidentally shot and injured Shantell Wilson. It was not immediately clear where the incident occurred.

Wilson has been treated at a hospital, and the local sheriff has a warrant out for Simmons' arrest.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
