A 26-year-old woman who was accidently shot in the head by her 6-year-old daughter Saturday remained in critical condition Monday at the LDS Hospital.
Lori Lucero, 3067 Baty Drive, was asleep on a couch at her sister's apartment at 11 a.m. when her daughter came into the room with a .22 caliber handgun, pointed the gun at her sleeping mother and pulled the trigger.The child's cousin and aunt saw the girl bring the gun into the room but assumed it was a toy, according to a Salt Lake Police report.
The child later told police she, too, thought she was playing with a toy gun. She found the gun on the floor of a bedroom in her aunt's apartment.
The shooting took place at 1378 S. Roberta St., #8.
