A 21-year-old mother was fatally shot by her toddler while she was working from home on Wednesday, authorities say.
Shamaya Lynn was apparently on a video phone call when the incident occurred. The handgun had been out, and it was loaded, when the child discovered it.
According to police, a coworker on the Zoom call saw the youngster, heard the gunshot, and then saw Lynn fall. She didn’t get back up. That colleague is the one who notified the authorities.
“Officers and paramedics did their best in rendering aid to Mrs. Lynn,” officials said. “But she was found with a fatal gunshot wound to the head.”
