Vocabulary: to shoot (v), buttock (n), motel (n), stable (adj), child negligence (n).


A three year old shot both of his parents after finding a gun in his mum’s handbag. The toddler was apparently looking for an IPod when he found the gun.

The boy shot his dad in the buttock and the bullet went straight through to hit his mother in the arm.

usaThe  family were in a motel room in Albuquerque, New Mexico when this happened. The little boy’s two-year-old sister was also in the motel room but was not hurt.

Both his parents were sent to hospital. His dad has since been released but his mum, who is eight months pregnant, is still in hospital.  She is in a stable condition.

It is possible that the police will charge the parents with child negligence.
