 A 3-year-old girl accidentally shot and wounded her pregnant mother while playing with her father’s loaded gun.

The girl, a 1-year-old boy, and their pregnant mother were waiting in a car parked outside a northwestern Indiana thrift store while the woman’s boyfriend was inside the store. The man, who is the girl’s father, apparently left a loaded gun in the car and the girl got hold of the gun and accidentally shot the pregnant mother.
