Mom of four killed when neighbor's gun accidentally goes off

A Florida mom-of-four was killed when her neighbor’s gun accidentally went off as he was cleaning it, shooting her in the head, authorities said.

Jennifer Edelen, 47, was fatally shot inside her home on Sunday afternoon, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

Her teenage daughter, who was also inside the house at the time, called 911 when she heard the gunfire, local outlet First Coast News reported.

A neighbor said he was cleaning his gun about 40 to 50 yards away from the victim, when the weapon went off by mistake, according to the sheriff’s office.

“This appears to be a tragic accident with the most unfortunate of outcomes,” said Sgt. Edwin Cayenne with the JSO Homicide Unit.

The neighbor is cooperating with investigators, who are working with the state attorney’s office to determine whether he will be charged, WJXT reported.

Friend and neighbor Linda McHenry remembered Edelen as kind and loving.

“She was just a loving person. She was a good person, I can say that. And we shared a lot together,” said Linda McHenry.

2-year-old boy shoots parents in Maine home

A 2-year-old boy in Maine shot his parents Wednesday morning with a gun he picked up from a nightstand, a report said.

The toddler’s 25-year-old father was hit in the head, and the mother, 22, was struck in the leg in the shooting at their home in West Bath, WMTW reported, citing Sagadahoc County Sheriff Joel Merry.

The baby was injured by the recoil of the gun, authorities said. All three family members were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, according to Merry.

“The question of how the boy was able to pick up and fire the weapon is of great concern and is being investigated,” Merry said, according to the report.

“This situation, while disturbing, could have had an even more tragic ending,” the sheriff said.

Banksy's 'Love is in the Air' auctioned for $12.9M in crypto

A Banksy piece fetched $12.9 million in an auction Tuesday — and the winning bidder will pay for the pricey pop art with cryptocurrency.

The anonymous artist’s “Love is in the Air” is the first physical piece of art sold by a major auction house paid for using crypto, according to a tweet from Sotheby’s.

The protest image — which shows a protester winding up with a bouquet of flowers in hand instead of a molotov cocktail — was sold after a 14-minute bidding battle with four participants, Sotheby’s said.

The auction house announced in March it would auction off a series of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, which are digital assets that represent ownership of virtual items like art and sports memorabilia.

“Following this restart, it will take several days for the product delivery supply chain to return to normal,” Colonial’s statement said.
