Local news reports further to our post at the time of the incident
The mother of a 6-year-old boy who accidentally shot himself is now facing criminal charges.
Konica Campbell, 23, of Rugraff Street is charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors.
According to the Rochester Police Department the child was shot in the lower part of his torso after he had found a loaded pistol and started playing with it.
Campbell was home at the time and called 911 about 6:50 p.m. Sunday. He was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital, where he is currently in satisfactory condition, police said.
Campbell was arrested Monday and arraigned Tuesday morning.
Well that didn't take long. Usually with your white hillbilly criminal gun owners it takes about a month for the investigation to result in charges. Not for this Rochester, New York mom.
