US Toddler Shoots Younger Sister In Face In Horror Accident

A one-year-old girl is in a critical condition after her two-year-old brother shot her in the face while they were in a parked car outside a Louisiana strip mall.

The children's mother, 23-year-old Crystal Kinchen, was arrested on Wednesday and faces a charge of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile.

Online jail records do not list a lawyer for her.

Sgt. L'Jean McKneely says the shooting happened on Tuesday night while Kinchen and the two children were in a car that was parked at a strip mall.

Police say the two-year-old boy picked up a gun that was left in the vehicle, and it accidentally discharged and struck the one-year-old girl.

McKneely says the family drove the child to the hospital rather than waiting for an ambulance.

The one-year-old is in critical condition.
