A 3-year-old Michigan boy accidentally shot his mother in the head Saturday, according to police.

The 26-year-old woman is expected to recover after her little boy discharged a gun, striking her in the head at home.

Police and rescuers were called to the home about 2:40 p.m, according to WZZM.

Ambulance workers reported the woman was shot in the back of the head, but she was conscious and talking with rescuers before being transported to Spectrum Health Butterworth hospital.

MLive reports:

Kentwood police officers and a Kent County sheriff’s deputy evidence technician were at the home Saturday afternoon.

They seemed to be focusing attention on the garage area of the home as they collected evidence.

Police also searched in a side yard.

Kentwood police Sgt. Stephanie Morningstar could not provide any other details of the incident which occurred at a private home. The woman’s name was not released, nor was the type of gun used in the shooting incident.

It’s been a bloody weekend. The Kalamazoo shooter took six lives and wounded three others. The 45-year-old suspect, Jason Dalton, is an Uber drive and in between driving customers to their destinations, he shot innocent people randomly.

The identity of the six lives Dalton took, including those of a father and son, have not been disclosed yet.

A Utah man ‘accidentally’ shot and killed his adult son while target practicing Saturday.

We’re sure there are other incidents around the country which we haven’t reported. There is no reason in the world why a 3-year-old should have access to a lethal weapon. More Americans have been killed by toddlers than those who have been killed by terrorists in the U.S. Let that sink in for a moment.

And sometimes, toddlers will see a shiny object such as a gun, and put it in their mouths. Oooo shiny!
