Abbott said the mother, who is eight months pregnant, was in stable condition after being rushed to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Authorities did not identify the couple.

The boy had been in the couple’s bedroom on Saturday afternoon when he found a loaded, unsecured handgun between the bed’s box spring and the mattress, Abbott said.
