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.

    Neither the children (the one year old was in front passenger seat with the grandmother) nor the gun was secured. Something as simple as putting a child in a car seat, or securing your gun in a locked box, etc., would have prevented a tragedy.

      Irresponsible of all the adults. One or two y.o.s should be secured in a car seat at all times while the car is moving. Gosh! How many ACCIDENTAL deaths (that could have been prevented) do we need hear about before we listen?

    This mother wasn’t so lucky. Just last month the same thing happened to another mother, only she didn’t die. She bragged about how great her son’s marksmanship skills were and only to be shot by him. When are we going to learn? In this story, this kid was 2 y.o. why wasn’t he strapped securely in a car seat? Why are you leaving a loaded gun in an easy accessible place? The story is it slid from underneath the seat, how do they know, were they there? Whatever the case, seems like some haven’t learned their lessons from the countless news stories of fatality involving youth and toddlers. Oh and best believe, when he gets older he’s going to find out he KILLED his mother, that’s what cousins are for.

      You are so on point, I did not even think about the child being strapped in a car seat. That would have made it impossible for him to reach the floor where they say the gun was. And I almost had to laugh at your last sentence about the cousins.

      Ms. Curly it’s okay to laugh. One of my cousins was adopted but never knew, how come my other cousins laid it out for her. She thought she was better than everyone else, but low and behold her feelings were quite hurt, I felt bad for the child and I was a child lol. Cousins tell it ALL!

    A horrible accident. Once again if you are going to own or carry a gun you have to be very responsible especially when you or your significant other has children. I will continue to pray for everyone.

    Cracker your an idiot who is just here trying to cause problems. You use the name Cracker to make us think you are white when really we know you are black and all you are trying to do is to make us turn our hearts against white people just because of the color of their skin. But we are not going to bite. you need to take your racist ideas and go play with the KKK, at least you will have something in common with them.
