Police say a central Pennsylvania mother accidentally shot her two young daughters while removing firearms from her vehicle as she prepared to go to church.

State police say 50-year-old Jane Rhodes of Boiling Springs was removing two muzzleloader guns from the back seat of the vehicle on Sunday when one of them discharged, striking both girls.

The 11-year-old girl was struck in the leg and her 10-year-old sister was struck in the pelvis as they tried to get into the vehicle around 10:30 a.m.
