A Puerta Rican boy of four accidentally killed himself with his police officer mother’s gun.
Brenda Lee Cotto was dropping her children off at school in San Juan, Puerto Rico, when the gun apparently fell between the two front seats of the car as she leaned over to comb her daughter’s hair.
Her autistic son, Jeremy Marcano, got out of his booster seat, picked up the gun and shot himself in the face.
The shooting occurred inside the car as the officer prepared to drop off two of her four children.
Her five-year-old daughter and two-year-old toddler were in the car, but her 11-year-old son already had got out.
