A Davenport, Iowa woman tried to teach her 6-year-old son a safety lesson by shooting him with a BB gun.

Twenty-five-year-old Courtney Kie-Marie Owens was arrested Tuesday and charged with child endangerment with injury, a felony that carries a penalty of five years in prison.

Police say Owens had just gotten the BB gun when her son kept trying to play with it. She tried to explain that the gun isn't a toy before purposely shooting him in the hip. He suffered a red swollen welt and was treated at the scene.

Owens was released from the Scott County Jail after posting a $5,000 bond.
