Sometimes in life, you get what you ask for.

A toddler in Florida fatally shot a woman during a video call after finding an unsecured handgun, police said Thursday.

Someone on the work-related Zoom conference called 911 and reported that they had seen a toddler and heard a noise before the woman, Shamaya Lynn, fell backward, police said in a statement.

Lynn, 21, was killed Wednesday in Altamonte Springs, near Orlando.

“Investigators determined that the injury was caused by a toddler who found a loaded handgun, which was left unsecured by an adult in the apartment,” Altamonte Springs police said in a statement. Police said Lynn was shot in the head.

The police statement did not identify the relationship, but NBC affiliate WESH of Orlando reported that police said she was the toddler’s mother.

Investigators said the handgun belonged to the father of the victim’s two young children, the station reported. Neither child was injured.
