Toddler, 3, shoots mother dead while she was changing daughter's diapers

A three-year-old boy shot his mother while she was changing her daughter's diapers in her home in Oklahoma on Monday (Nov 24).

Three-year-old toddler repeatedly said "Mummy shot" before police took him away for an interview. 

A gunshot wound to the head was discovered on Ms Christa Engles' head.   

According to Tulsa World, the toddler spotted a gun on a table close to the sofa and accidentally pulled the trigger.

The 26-year-old mother was found when the children's grandmother arrived at the house. 

Several guns found

A police spokesman said that several guns were found in the house.

"We are prepared to do what we have to do to keep the kids safe, but I think this is a horrible, horrible accident," he told NBC News.

The children's father learnt of the fatal accident when he returned home hours later.
