(Scroll down for video) A mother of two children is dead after being shot by her young son.

Police in Oklahoma, said that the 26-year-old mother was accidentally shot dead by her 3-year-old son while she was changing the diaper of her one-year-old daughter.

Police said that the boy found the loaded semiautomatic pistol and fired a shot, hitting his mother, Christa Engles, in the head at her home in Tulsa.

Engles’ mother and her husband also live in the home, but they were not home at the time of the accident.

When the grandmother came home, she found the two children covered in blood. Authorities said that they found a lot of guns in the house.

Her husband, Brian Engles, is a truck driver who was on the road at the time of the incident. He got a message that his wife was hurt, and only confirmed that his wife was dead repeatedly calling the hospital.

On his Facebook page Brain wrote: “My wife has been hurt really bad while I was out working. Don’t ask what or call me, just pray with all you’ve got. Thanks.”

The boy apparently found the high caliber firearm under a couch. “We think this is a horrible, horrible accident,” said Sergeant Dave Walker.
