A North Carolina mother of five was accidentally shot to death after one of her children found a loaded gun in her purse, authorities said.

Cops responded to Gabriel Henderson’s apartment in Cornelius around 7 p.m. on Monday, where they found her dead in a bedroom in the back of the home, according to the Cornelius Police Department.

Officers also found a small semiautomatic handgun on the bed, police said.

They believe the children found the weapon in their mother’s purse. It was not clear who had fired the weapon.
