    A Connecticut woman is facing charges for allegedly leaving her children in the car while she went Black Friday bargain hunting.

    Police say at about 1:45 a.m. Friday a shopper at the East Windsor Walmart told officers at the store that two children had been left in a parked car.

    Police tell The Hartford Courant they found the 2-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy sleeping in the back seat of a running, unlocked car.
