Police in central Florida have arrested the father of a toddler who found a loaded handgun in his Paw Patrol backpack and fatally shot his mother while she was on a Zoom call for work.

Veondre Avery, 22, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with negligent manslaughter and unsafe storage of a firearm, Altamonte Springs police said.

Investigators said the two-year-old found the gun in the backpack on August 11 and fired a single shot that hit his mother, Shamaya Lynn, in the head.

A woman who also was on the Zoom call dialled 911, reporting that she heard a noise and saw Ms Lynn fall. The co-worker didn’t know how old Ms Lynn was or where she lived, but meanwhile Mr Avery also called 911, begging responders to hurry as he tried to help Ms Lynn.

“I literally just got home and I come in the room … (and) my girlfriend who was working on the computer, she’s just laid back and there’s blood everywhere,” Mr Avery said on the 911 call.

He told the dispatcher Ms Lynn wasn’t breathing and he could not feel her heartbeat. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities said another child also was in the home during the shooting.

The Seminole County State Attorney’s Office said Mr Avery is being held without bond. Records did not list an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
