KING GEORGE, Va. -- Authorities say a Virginia man who shot a pregnant woman while playing with a gun was charged with multiple felonies.

The Free Lance Star reports 27-year-old William Noble Brown IV called police Monday to report a woman he lived with was shot in the arm.

Police say the 25-year-old victim was hospitalized for her injuries.

Police say other children were in the home when Brown fired the gun he thought to be unloaded.
