Christmas Turns Deadly for Mom

When you go out shopping with your family, the last thing you expect is to be shot by a toddler. That is exactly what happened in one Wal-Mart this season.

Veronica J. Rutledge was shopping with her four children at a Wal-Mart in Idaho when her two year old son reached into her purse and found her concealed gun. A single shot is fired and Veronica is found dead at the scene when police arrive. Video surveillance and witness statements prove that this was an accidental shooting. Mrs. Rutledge did have a concealed weapons permit issues through Spokane, Washington.

Jared Haftel had told me that her father claims that Veronica was a very responsible person, but the fact that her two year old was able to fire her loaded weapon in a crowded store seems to say otherwise.
