A 26-year-old Wisconsin woman was shot and killed in her car by her 2-year-old son on Tuesday morning in Milwaukee.
According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Patrice Price, a mother of three, was driving her boyfriend’s car at around 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday when her 2-year-old son found an unsecured weapon in the back seat and fired it. The bullet struck Price in the back.
Witnesses said that the vehicle came to a stop in the middle of Highway 175 and a crowd quickly formed as people rushed to Price’s aid, but it was too late. Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.
Price’s father Andre Price told WISN Channel 12 that his daughter’s boyfriend, a security guard, must have accidentally left his weapon in the vehicle. The father said that authorities have kept him from his daughter’s body.
“Now I don’t have her no more. My chest has been hurting,” said Andre Price. “I have a knot in my chest. They won’t even let me see my daughter. I wanted to hold my daughter for one last time.”

Russian trolls start hyping COVID-19 misinformation — and Rudy Giuliani’s crazed rants about the Bidens
Russian trolls recently have started hyping a mix of misinformation about the coronavirus and crazed conspiracy theories posted by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.
The Daily Beast reports that one of the trolls' main information operations revolves around blaming the United States Department of Defense for purportedly creating the coronavirus, even though all credible epidemiologists agree it originated in China.
"The story, posted to Russian-language blogs and Reddit by multiple fake personas, tries to pin the blame on the COVID-19 outbreak on the U.S. and Kazakhstan by casting the virus as the byproduct of a U.S. nonproliferation program in the country," the publication finds. "The trolls pointed to social media posts by a group of hackers calling themselves 'Anonymous Kazakhstan.'"
