Canadian Press NewsAlert: Boy, 2, accidentally shoots mother at Idaho Wal-Mart

December 30, 2014 - 12:20 PM

HAYDEN, Idaho - Authorities in northern Idaho say a 2-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his mother after he reached into her purse at a Wal-Mart store and the concealed gun fired.

Kootenai County sheriff's spokesman Stu Miller tells reporters that the shooting was accidental and occurred in the store in Hayden, Idaho, a town about 40 miles northeast of Spokane, Washington.

Miller says the woman had a concealed weapons permit. Her identity has not been released.

The Wal-Mart closed after the shooting.

Hayden is a politically conservative town of about 9,000 people just north of Coeur d'Alene in Idaho's northern panhandle.

More to come.
