Hinesville police say a woman was shot and wounded by her 2-year-old son early Wednesday morning.

An incident report filed by Hinesville Police Officer Scott Mercer says he and several officers responded to a call of an accidental shooting in the 100 block of Deann Drive.  When Mercer arrived he says he found 23-year-old Joanne Winding sitting on the front doorway, crying for help.  
Two handguns were found in the woman's bedroom on a night stand, two children were also found inside the home.
The woman told the officers she thought she had seen a person outside of the home and that is why she had loaded one of the guns.  The report says she then went to lay down and that is when she was shot once in her right arm, by her 2-year-old son. 
The children are currently in the custody of a family friend. The woman was transported to Liberty Regional Medical Center in Hinesville but was later transported to Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah for treatment.  The case remains under investigation. Yeah, the case remains under investigation, wink wink nudge nudge.
