Deputies from the Pima County Sheriff's Department are investigating after a mother was shot in the arm by her 2-year-old. 

Deputy Cody Gress, a spokesman for the department, says the incident happened Monday morning in the 6700 block of West Copperwood Way in Tucson.

Gress says the gun was unsecured and discharged as the mother was attempting to take it away from the child.

The woman was taken to the hospital with injuries that appear to be non-life-threatening.
