A three-year-old boy shot and wounded his father and pregnant mother with a single bullet from a gun he pulled out of the woman's purse while searching for an iPad.

Both parents needed hospital treatment for non-life threatening injuries after the bullet went through his father's buttocks and into his mother's shoulder, according to police in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The woman, who is eight-months pregnant, was being kept at the hospital for observation while the man was released.

The couple could face negligence charges. The woman told police she bought the gun the day before Saturday's incident.
