Christa EnglesTULSA, OK — Tulsa police say 26-year-old Christa Engles died after she was accidentally shot in the head by her 3-year-old son.

Engles was home Monday afternoon with her one-year-old and three-year-old children. According to Homicide Sergeant Dave Walker, Engles was changing the baby’s diaper when her toddler somehow gained access to a loaded, semi-automatic handgun and fired the fatal shot.

According to a neighbor, the children’s grandmother came in to the room and found Engles wounded and the two children covered in her blood. Engles was rushed to the hospital but would die from her injuries.

The boy reportedly repeated “Mommy shot” over and over again as he was taken away from the home to be interviewed by child specialists. The boy would admit to them that he’d found the gun under the couch before firing the fatal shot.

Police confirmed that they found several guns inside the home. Engles’ husband is a truck driver who was on the road at the time of the shooting.

“I lost my Wife to an accident yesterday,” he posted on Facebook. “Don’t forget to tell your loved ones they are loved. You really never know when the last I love you really is the last.”

Not bad advice. But some better advice would have been to remind people to keep guns from being accessible by children. Not only has this family lost a loved-one, this boy will eventually have to deal with the fact that he shot his mother to death.
