(KMOV) – Police say a teenager accidentally shot his mother at their Oakville home Thursday evening.

The incident occurred at the woman’s home on Wickershire Lane around 7 p.m. 

According to the victim’s sister-in-law, the father had a gun pulled out so he could add a new piece to the weapon. 

Police said the victim’s 18-year-old son picked up the weapon to clean it when it allegedly went off, hitting his mother in the leg.

The victim was rushed to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police did not comment any further.
