MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) - Police have identified the woman whose body was found in a South Florida apartment after a 911 caller reported that she had been shot by her toddler son.
Thirty-three-year-old Julia Bennett was found at her Miramar apartment Wednesday evening. Neighbors described hearing one gunshot at about 7 p.m.
Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues said Thursday that the father of the 2 1/2 years old boy had placed the 911 call. He told investigators the child had somehow accessed the gun and accidentally fired it.
The father has a concealed weapons permit for the firearm.
Investigators tried to talk to the boy, but said he does not appear to understand what happened.
The investigation is continuing.
