Police say a woman was accidentally shot in the hand with a pistol she concealed in her purse while at a Wake Forest, N.C. Staples store Thursday evening, local ABC affiliate WTVD reported.

The woman, Danielle Hayes, had a concealed-carry permit, according to police. The pistol discharged when she tried to remove her 2-year-old child’s hand from the purse, police said. 

Hayes was taken to a medical facility and charged the next day with failing to secure a firearm from a minor, WTVD reported.
