(Scroll down for video) A police officer in under investigation after his son shot his wife.

The officer’s two-year-old son of North Carolina, accidentally shot his 30-year-old mother at their home on Wednesday night.

Authorities said that Jeremy Ferguson’s son found his father’s weapon in a bag that was closed with a zipper, and accidentally fired it. The bullet hit his mother, Christina Ferguson, in the buttocks.

The boy found the gun, which was not Ferguson’s service weapon, in the laundry room of his house.

Christina was taken to the Carolina Health System Union, where she has since been discharged in good condition.

The Waxhaw police chief said that Ferguson has been with the department for a year and he was a “good officer.”

Ferguson has been placed on administrative leave as the Waxhaw Police Department conducts its own internal investigation, which will determine if any charges will be filed.
