Florida: According to police in central Florida, a child discovered an unsecured, loaded handgun inside an apartment and fatally shot a mother as she was on a work-related video conferencing.
The woman was the mother of the child who fired her in the head on Wednesday, according to the media source.
Following the event, someone on the video call dialed 911 after hearing the sound and seeing the toddler in the backdrop.
Shamaya Lynn, 21, was identified as the individual who fell backward and never reappeared to the video conversation, according to the person.
“Officers and paramedics did their best to assist Mrs. Lynn, but she was found with a fatal gunshot wound to her head,” the police said.
