A Mother from Chicago is facing a child endangerment charge after her 5-year-old daughter accidentally shot herself in their home. 22-year-old Larrinita Starks was taken into custody and has been charged with misdemeanor child endangerment.

The child was inside the home in the city’s East Garfield Park neighborhood when she shot herself in the stomach.

The next door neighbor , Jadari Perry heard the gunshot. He said:

“I was doing my homework. I went outside to see where it came from,” Perry said.

Perry said that a family member drove her to Rush University Medical Center. The girl was then reportedly transferred to another Hospital, where she is currently listed in serious condition.

Investigators are trying to figure out how the little girl was able to get her hands on the gun.

Every year, hundreds of fatal accidents occur with children and guns. This is yet another one of those tragic occurrences.

Starks is due to appear in court on March 16th.
