Baldwin County Sheriff’s authorities are investigating what they are calling a “bizarre” shooting. They said it appears two members of one family were shot, and it all appears to have been accidental.
The incident happened Friday night, when Allen Jones took his .40 caliber handgun out of his truck. As he was walking back to the house, he tripped and fell. The gun allegedly went off and shot Allen in the leg.
“He called for assistance from his wife Aleisha. She came to his aide,” said Major Anthony Lowery.
Lowery said while all this was happening, the couple’s two-year-old son ran to pick up the gun.
Aleisha tried to get the weapon from the boy, but the toddler wound up shooting his mother in the neck.
