On Tuesday, a 2-year-old toddler accidentally shot his mother from the backseat of her car, after he picked up a gun that slid out from under the driver’s seat while she was driving on a Milwaukee highway. The 26-year-old woman, Patricia Price was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the sheriff’s officials, who also said they recovered a .40-caliber gun and security officer’s gun belt which had belonged to her boyfriend (she was driving his car). At the time of the incident, Price’s mother and another 1-year-old son were seated in the front passenger seat, but no one else was injured. “She was the best mom for her kids, put clothes on their back,” said her 28-year-old brother, Antonio Price. “When I needed her, she always cared for me and gave me great advice.” Price leaves behind another daughter, too, who’s believed to be 7 or 8 years old.  At this point, it is unclear whether the case was seen as a potential crime and whether any charges would be filed. The incident comes merely a month after Jamie Gilt, a 31-year old Florida woman was shot by her 4-year old son from the backseat of her car, though she incredibly survived the accidental shooting.
