A Minneapolis woman is facing child endangerment charges after her boyfriend's son shot himself in the hand.
Tiara Marie Wilburn, 34, brought the loaded gun to her boyfriend's house on the 1400 block of Newton Avenue North on Thursday. His 4-year-old son got a hold of it and shot himself.
He suffered a significant hand injury that required surgery, according to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office.
She accompanied the boy and his father to the hospital, where she told police that the gun belonged to her, saying she brought it to the house and left it in her purse.
The purse itself was left on the floor in the bedroom closet, and said the boy must've gone into it while she was preparing medicine for his father.
According to the criminal complaint, she admitted she did have any gun locks or lock boxes for the gun.
The gun was found on the dining table of the property when police searched the home, along with blood splatter on the wall of the home's entryway and a bullet hole in the ceiling.
Wilburn will make her first court appearance Monday.
