A 4-year-old in Tampa, Fl. accidentally shot her aunt in the back with a gun left unattended by the child’s uncle, according to Fox News Tampa Bay.
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.
