Someone called 911 after watching the incident take place over video.
According to local police, a Florida woman was shot and killed by her own toddler on August 11 while on a work-related Zoom call.
In a Facebook post, Altamonte Springs Police said that Shamaya Lynn, 21, was on the Zoom call when her coworkers saw a toddler in the background and "heard a noise" before Lynn fell to the ground and did not return to the call.
"Officers and paramedics did their best in rendering aid to Mrs. Lynn," police said, "but she was found with a fatal gunshot wound to the head."
According to the post, investigators have determined that the death occurred after Lynn's toddler had found a loaded and unsecured handgun in the apartment, which had been left there by an adult.
"The investigation is ongoing and detectives are working closely with the Seminole County State Attorney's Office concerning any charges which may be appropriate for the owner of the firearm," police reported.
