Woman tells Putnam County Deputy that Son, 4, Shot Her in Back While She was Driving

A deputy on patrol in Putnam County noticed a woman in a pickup truck with a horse trailer attached on the side of the road acting frantically Tuesday afternoon and when he began investigating the situation she told him her 4-year-old son accidentally shot her while he was sitting in the back seat, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

From Joe Dareskevich at the Florida Times-Union, “A gunshot fired from inside a pickup truck in Putnam County went through the driver’s back and out the front of her torso Tuesday afternoon. When a deputy asked the injured woman what happened, she said her 4-year-old son did it. Less than a day earlier, a Facebook post, which may belong to the victim, talked of letting a 4-year-old boy shoot targets.”
