    The Herald-Dispatch

    HUNTINGTON, WV -- A Huntington woman has been charged with felony child neglect resulting in serious injury after her child was injured in an accidental shooting at her home in the 1200 block of 10th Avenue.

    Brittany Raquel Briers, 22, was arrested Thursday night and was being held at the Western Regional Jail. Bond was denied pending arraignment.

    According to a release from Huntington Police Department, officers were dispatched to Cabell Huntington Hospital at 4:41 p.m. Thursday after EMS transported Briers' 5-year-old daughter, who had suffered a gunshot wound to her foot.

    Sgt. John Williams said in the release that the victim and her 2-year-old sibling gained access to a loaded AK-47 that was under the sofa in the family room

    Pathetic. Yet, if you see this chick's photo, she looks like a meth or crack addict. (Click the link). The "AK-47" was probably an AKM or similar civilian version, maybe even and SKS, reporters don't know the difference. This area where mom lives is overloaded with drug and gang activity so it may be the reason why the rifle was there. No mention of the "man" of the house, he was probably out "distributiing" the product. Still not good a child had easy access to a weapon. Gives us responsible gun owners a black eye.

    But, but it was hidden under the sofa. Some people should not reproduce.

    Does this preclude her from mother of the year award? She does look a little haggard....

    I hate it when innocent children are hurt by negligent, careless and ignorant parents/adults. I hope that the girl recovers soon and is raised by a more suitable family.

    Shes 22 & has a 5 year old & 2 year old, she didnt get off to a good start besides she looks as if she has some drug issues to boot
    Now she leaves a loaded AK where children can get to it, i hope she gets time & someone more responsible can raise those kids (which iam willing to bet would not be the grandparents)

    I bet you the gun belonged to a boyfriend who was prohibited from owning/purchasing the firearm. Very popular.
