Child Injures Self with Gun in Newton Home

NEWTON, Kan. — A 2-year-old child is expected to recover after accidentally shooting himself in the hand at a Newton home. Officers were called to Newton Medical Center at 10:39 a.m. Friday.

Police say the boy was at his grandparents' house in the 900 block of Cherry Hills Drive, where a handgun had been left on a table.

As the boy's grandmother went to answer the telephone, police said the child picked up the handgun and fired one shot, grazing his finger. The bullet went through the front door and hit a neighbor's house.

The child was treated and released.

The Harvey County Attorney will determine if the grandparents will face charges in the case.
