The father of a woman who was fatally shot while driving on a Milwaukee highway says it was the woman's two-year-old son who fired the gun from the backseat.

Milwaukee County sheriff's officials say a child somehow got hold of a gun and shot a 26-year-old woman once in the back as she drove south on Highway 175 Tuesday. The sheriff's department has not identified the woman or her relationship to the child.

But, Andre Price tells WISN-TV (http://bit.ly/1SP2C1U ) that his daughter, Patrice Price, was driving her boyfriend's car when she was shot by her son. He says his daughter was a hardworking mother of three.

Price says he has not been allowed to see his daughter and that he wants to hold her one last time.
