Boy,13 accidentally shoots his mother in the neck

Police from Fulton County are investigating the case of a 13-year old boy who accidentally shot his mother in the neck while playing with a real gun he thought was a toy. He told police he found the weapon in his neighborhood in College Park, Southwest of Atlanta, and brought it home.

The gun is not believed to have had a magazine in it, but went off while the boy was playing with it, hitting his mother in the neck.

Fulton County Police Detective Melissa Parker says the mother is in a stable condition after having emergency surgery.

The boy's older brother, Malik Touray, said it was a terrible accident. 

He told Channel 2 news: 'It looked like a toy to me.

'He was playing with it and he was right close to her and she just got hit by accident.'

When some weapons are cocked, a bullet will move into the chamber and stay there even after the magazine is removed.
Pulling or knocking the trigger even slightly would then fire the bullet.

Fulton County police say they are still investigating, but no charges have been filed.

Channel 2 reported that the incident happened at the same home where the victim's brother was was ambushed, shot and killed in the driveway more than a year ago.
