Arrest after Del. boy, 3, fires shotgun
Seaford police have arrested an 18-year-old woman after her 3-year-old son fired two shots from a .410 shotgun, which struck the roll-up door of a firehouse.
Christy Smullen has been charged with discharging a weapon in the city limits, endangering the welfare of a child and other offenses. She was released on $8,000 unsecured bail.
It happened about 2:10 p.m. Wednesday when officers received a report that the firehouse was being shot at.
A spokesman says officers found two bullet holes in a roll-up door of the firehouse.
Police say an investigation showed that a 3-year-old boy on a porch across the street had gotten the loaded shotgun from the home and fired at the firehouse.
