A 2-year-old child shot dead his pregnant mother in the US state of Norwalk recently, media reports said.

 Police received a call just after 1 p.m. on June 16 from the 31-year-old mother, who said she was “shot in the back by her 2-year-old son,” according to a news release from the Norwalk Police Department as quoted by CNN.

She also informed the dispatcher she was eight months pregnant, the release said. Moments later, her husband called 911 and stated “he received a phone call from his wife ‘screaming something about my son and needing to call 911.’”

Officers arrived at the house and forced entry through a locked front door, according to the release.

Both the mother and her son “were found in the upstairs master bedroom, along with” a pistol, the release said.

The son was removed from the room at the request of his mother, and officers rendered aid.

The mother was “fully conscious” and gave officers a “complete account of the events that occurred,” according to authorities as reported by CNN.

Her husband later arrived at the home.

The mother was transported to a medical center where an emergency C-section was performed. The unborn son was later pronounced dead, followed by the mother, reports the American news channel.
