A 24-year-old Houston, Texas, woman is facing charges after she accidentally shot her son while trying to kill a neighbor’s puppy who had escaped from home. According to multiple sources, Angelia Mia Vargas was shooting at her neighbor’s six-month-old boxer when one of the bullets ricocheted and hit her five-year-old son.
According to MSN, the incident took place on the afternoon of May 29 and resulted in her son suffering a gunshot wound to his abdomen. The puppy, named Bruno, suffered “graze wounds” and is doing okay. Bruno’s owner was chasing after the pup when Vargas opened fire with a pistol.
