WATCH: How the doll killing doll went viral on social media
A toy doll killed two women and a child Wednesday night at a South Carolina toy store, sparking a nationwide debate about the toy’s safety.
The girl, who is not being named, was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, and her parents are in police custody, CBS affiliate WCBD-TV reported.
Authorities say the boy was unharmed.
The attack was the second fatal shooting of a doll in a few weeks.
The first, on June 30, took place at a Toys R Us in Columbia, South Carolina.
The toy company was closed for several days.
An investigation into the incidents is ongoing, police said in a statement.
Toys R and S has since reopened, and the store is operating normally, the store’s owner, John C. Kuehne, told the Associated Press.
He said the family is being held in the Charleston County Jail pending charges.
South Carolina Gov.
Henry McMaster called the attack a “senseless and senseless attack” and said he is asking for the public’s help in identifying the person who committed the shooting.
