Police said the boy was in critical but stable condition after a single shot rang out in a house in the northwest and hit the boy in the face.
SAN ANTONIO – A two-year-old may have been playing with a gun when it went off once and hit him in the face, according to the San Antonio Police Department.
Police said the boy was in critical but stable condition after a single shot went off in a house in the North West on Saturday night, hitting the boy in the left cheek and cutting off his ear.
Detectives were at the scene trying to figure out what had happened and were waiting for a search warrant to enter the home. They said the father was in the house but he said he didn’t hear the gunshot and that two other family members were there and heard it. Police believe the gun involved was a 9mm pistol and it is unclear who it belonged to.
Police were unsure whether charges would be brought in the case and an investigation is ongoing.
