GRANBURY, Texas (WJW) — Police in Texas are investigating after a mother and a 1-year-old were injured in an accidental shooting involving a 2-year-old child.

The Granbury Police Department said on Facebook that officers responded Wednesday morning to a reported shooting at a Walmart.

Based on statements from witnesses and evidence at the scene, police said it appears the 2-year-old and a 1-year-old were inside a car, while the children’s 23-year-old mother and 26-year-old father were both standing outside of the vehicle.

According to police, the 2-year-old picked up a gun that was reportedly concealed between the seat and the center console, and the gun fired once.

Police said the bullet went through the 1-year-old’s leg, and through the mother’s arm and into her side.

The infant’s injury is not believed to be life-threatening, though the mother’s injury was said to be potentially more serious.

Her condition was not immediately known.
