2-year-old shoots self at Kansas home


NEWTON, Kan. (AP) — A 2-year-old boy is recovering after shooting himself in the hand at his grandparents’ home in south-central Kansas.

KAKE-TV reports the toddler was released from a Newton hospital after being treated for a wound to his finger Friday morning.

Police said a handgun had been left on a table at the grandparents’ home in Newton. The toddler picked up the gun when his grandmother went to answer the telephone and fired one shot, grazing his finger.

The bullet went through the front door and struck a neighbor’s house.

The Harvey County prosecutor will determine if the grandparents will be charged.
