Shooting 3-year-old girl accidentally shoots, wounds pregnant mother in US

A toddler was playing with her father's handgun when she shot her pregnant mother Tuesday in a northwest in parking lot, according to media reports.

The shooting happened Tuesday afternoon in Merrillville when the boyfriend walked into a store and left the loaded gun in the auto between the console and the seat, Merrillville police chief Joseph Petruch told ABC News.

Meanwhile, her 21-year-old boyfriend was in the store, Petruch said, and the "next thing he knows somebody comes running in said, 'Your wife or girlfriend has just been shot'". Police say the couple had traveled to Merrillville from Michigan City to get the woman pregnancy care.

"[The girl] had no idea what she had done and she was very scared", Detective Sgt. James Bogner told NBC Chicago. Officers haven't said how she's doing. "Someone said someone was hurt and bleeding", she said. Her father was inside the store at the time, the station reported.

"When you take on a responsibility of gun ownership, you have to be a responsible adult", he said. "All she was saying was 'help, help, '" Rebecca Todd told WFLD-TV.

"He rushed over, he was bawling his eyes out", her co-worker Paloma Prieto said. "We grabbed them. We brought them inside, and we just tried comforting them as best we could".

"A loaded weapon with children in the back seat: real careless act", Merrillville police Chief Joe Petruch told WMAQ. The children have been placed in the custody of the Indiana Department of Child Services.

Some witnesses heard the lone gunshot while others heard the woman's pained screams and found her stumbling out of the vehicle with blood "pouring out of her", WFQX-TV reported. "I hope she survives the gunshot wound".
