ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Two Rockford residents were charged after a six-year-old got his hands on a gun and shot a woman.

Officers responded to the 700 block of Belmont Boulevard around 8:20 a.m. Sunday for reports of a shooting victim, according to the Rockford Police Department. They were told when they arrived that a 6-year-old boy had obtained an unattended gun from inside the house, shot the weapon, and hit a nearby 28-year-old female.

The woman was transported to a local hospital and is reportedly in stable condition.

Khadijah Morris, 28, was charged with Endangering the Life/Health of a Child and No Valid FOID.

Ashley Laures, 29, is also charged with Endangering the Life/Health of a child.

This is the second incident in the last two weeks where a 6-year-old was able to locate an unattended gun. Ellioth Lopez, 26, was charged with a felony offense last Tuesday after his son accidentally killed himself.

The Rockford Police Department is partnering with Project Child Safe to give out free gun locks. Residents can pick them up Monday-Friday at the three police district headquarters.
