    Question Florida dad tells 911 toddler fatally shot mom

    Fla. dad tells 911 toddler fatally shot mom - Yahoo! News

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Authorities have taken a toddler from his father while they investigate the man's report that the child accidently shot his mother to death.

    The father of the 2 1/2 year old boy called 911 on Wednesday and said the child had somehow accessed the gun and accidentally fired the 9 mm semiautomatic weapon, killing 33-year-old Julia Bennett. Miramar Police said the father, who has not been identified, has a concealed weapons permit for the firearm.

    Police are questioning the man, but no arrests have been made.

    Bennett's family does not believe the child shot her. The boy's great-aunt, Marva Anglin, said he keeps asking for his mother.

    Judge Arlene Simon on Friday ordered the boy to stay with Anglin and his great-grandmother.

    It's been a while since I fired a Glock. This was an interesting observation in a followup story:

    Inside a West Miami-Dade store, one gun owner said he had serious questions about the claim that the two-year-old boy fired the gun.
    “It’s highly unlikely that this would have been possible because it requires five pounds of pressure to pull the trigger of a nine millimeter semi-automatic glock pistol like this one,” said longtime gun owner Kevin Gleason. “Even if the gun was chambered and ready to fire, this would have been very difficult. I don’t buy this story.”
