BOARDMAN, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman has been charged with child endangerment after her child grabbed her gun from her purse, causing it to fire in a Sam’s Club.
Amanda Karr, 31, was charged Wednesday, according to court records, WKBN-TV reported.
No one was shot, but two people reported leg pain after the shooting, according to a police report.
Police say they found bullet fragments and plastic fragments from what appeared to be a shopping cart.
Karr told police that she looked away for a brief period and the child retrieved her gun from a concealed compartment, disengaged the safety and pulled the trigger, according to a police report.
Karr did not have an attorney listed and is scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 3.
