HAYDEN, Idaho — A horrific story out of Idaho. Police say a two-year-old accidentally shot and killed his mom inside a Walmart Tuesday.

How is this even possible?!

According to KREM , the 29-year-old mother was shopping in the electronics section with her four kids. That’s when the toddler, who was in the shopping cart, reached inside the mom’s purse and the gun went off.

Deputies say surveillance video helped them determine exactly what happened.

We’re told the woman did not have a concealed weapons permit. It is not clear what kind of handgun she was carrying.
