LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A 5-year-old is being treated for a gunshot wound after accidentally being shot by his sister.
Little Rock Police Dept. Sgt. Cassandra Davis said police were called to the Baptist Hospital emergency room about 5 p.m. Thursday in relation to a child being shot in the ankle.
Davis said the incident happened after a father picked his five-and-six-year-old children up from daycare and had gone back to their home on Wynn St. He left the children in his truck while he went to get something from inside the home. While inside, he reportedly heard a loud 'bang' and saw the girl get out of the truck.
The girl apparently got the gun that her father kept in the truck's console and somehow shot her brother in the ankle. The father, who had a conceal carry permit, took his son to the hospital.
After questioning and investigation, detectives released the father without charges. The case is now being reviewed by the prosecutor's office to determine if charges will be filed.
