Florida dad was charged with manslaughter following the death of his 2-year-old son who found a gun in a Paw Patrol backpack, and shot his mother while she was on Zoom with her co-workers. The horrific incident took place on Aug. 11, the state attorney’s office said in a statement. The toddler found the gun inside a backpack that prosecutors allege was left on the couple’s bedroom floor, then colleagues of Shamaya Lynn, 21, watched in horror as they heard a gunshot over Zoom and saw her suddenly fall backward. Dad Veondre Avery (22) faces manslaughter charges and failure to properly store a firearm. According to Seminole County jail records, he was still in custody Tuesday night. “I know it’s tragic, I know it may not have been something that that person wanted to do, but now you have consequences,” Altamonte Springs Police Officer Rob Ruiz told reporters.
