A 4-year-old girl is in critical condition after an accidental shooting in LaGrange, police said.
The handgun used Monday morning was within reach of the child’s 2-year-old and 7-year-old brothers and authorities told Channel 2 Action News they believe one of the siblings fired the shot.
Both brothers and the children’s mother were home at the time of the shooting, LaGrange police Sgt. Robert Kirby said. Investigators are trying to determine whether the mother or someone else owned the firearm.
