The man, who is the girl’s father, apparently left a loaded gun in the car and the girl got hold of the gun and accidentally shot the pregnant mother.

The shooting happened Tuesday afternoon in Merrillville, Indiana. The woman, who has now been identified as 21-year-old Shaniqua Thomas, is listed in critical but stable condition. Detective Sgt. James Bogner says the girl “had no idea what she had done and she was very scared.”
