WKBN-TV reports that court records show Amanda Karr was charged Wednesday. Police say that no one was shot but that two people reported leg pain after the shooting. Police say they found bullet fragments and plastic fragments, apparently from a shopping cart. Police say Karr told them that she looked away briefly and that the child retrieved her gun from a concealed compartment, disengaged the safety and pulled the trigger.
