The Hendricks County Sherriff’s Department along with Child Protective Services are investigating after a 2-year-old accidentally shot his mother this morning.

Sherriff’s Deputies were called to the 6400 block of West US Highway 36 in Marion Township west of Danville this morning around 9:20 am on a report of a person shot.

A preliminary investigation indicates that a 2-year-old child (male) located a semi-automatic pistol within his home and shot his 40-year-old mother.  A 5-year-old sibling was also at home at the time of the incident and called for help for their mother.
