The mother of a six-year-old boy who accidentally shot himself while playing with a loaded pistol is now facing charges.
Rochester police charged Konica Campbell, 23, with criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child.
Police were called to 31 Rugraff Street just before 7 p.m. Sunday. That's where police found the boy with a gunshot wound to his lower body. He was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Campbell was arraigned in Rochester City Court Tuesday morning.
