Woman loading gun shot car; her dad, son inside

SAUCIER, Miss. —  

Harrison County Sheriff Melvin Brisolara says that after a Saucier (SOH-sir) woman apparently shot her 47-year-old father and 2-year-old son by accident, a deputy investigating the shooting was injured by fumes from a meth lab in her home.

The Sun Herald reports that 20-year-old Jessica Amanda Saucier and her 18-year-old boyfriend, Walter Edward Franklin III, were charged with felony child neglect and their bonds set at $100,000. It was not clear whether they had lawyers.

Maj. Ron Pullen says Saucier told deputies her shotgun went off while she was loading or unloading it during target practice. The blast hit the vehicle in which her child and father were sitting, critically injuring the child and hitting her father's face.

Brisolara says the child is at USA Medical Center in Mobile.
