“There is information that the gun was moved at some point inside that vehicle which caused the gun to go off,” Sgt. Fortune said.
An investigation is ongoing, and police said as of 6:30 p.m. Friday, no arrests had been made.
“This is a reminder of how important it is to make sure there’s gun safety in place. When you’re transporting handguns or weapons in a vehicle, they have to be in a place where they’re safe away from other children,” Sgt. Fortune said.
