A 5-year-old girl left home alone in New Orleans while her mother went to the store fatally shot herself in the head, police said Sunday.
The child’s mother, Laderika Smith — who turned 28 on Sunday, according to the jail website — was booked on a charge of cruelty to a juvenile for leaving her alone.
Officers were called to her North Galvez St. home shortly before 11 a.m. and found the little girl had “accidentally shot herself in the head,” police said in a statement.
