2-year-old Milwaukee girl killed in accidental shooting

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A 2-year-old Milwaukee girl died Friday in what authorities called an accidental shooting.

Police were called about 9:10 a.m. to a report of a gunshot injury. The girl was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

A 33-year-old Milwaukee woman has been taken into custody, police said.

Authorities had no further details but issued a plea asking people to secure and keep firearms out of the reach of children.

A 3-year-old Milwaukee boy died earlier this month when he discovered a loaded firearm and inadvertently shot himself.
