No charges will be filed against a 31-year-old Wamego woman who was accidentally shot by a toddler in early January.
In an email to KMAN Friday, Pottawatomie County Attorney Sherri Schuck said she is declining charges at this time, citing insufficient evidence to pursue charges of aggravated child endangerment.
The shooting occurred Jan. 5 when a 2-year-old got a hold of a gun inside the woman’s home. A male adult was also home at the time.
The woman, who has not been identified, was transported to a Topeka hospital in critical condition with gunshot wounds to the chest and shoulder. Her current condition is unknown.
