In another case, a woman was arrested in April for accidentally shooting an 11-year-old boy in a grocery store parking lot in Dallas.

Shamira Wright-Sanders was charged with three counts of endangering a child with severe bodily injury, a second-degree felony.

She left three children alone in the car and went into the grocery store. The kids discovered a gun in the vehicle, and a 9-year-old accidentally shot Dazmon Ray Brown Jr.
