TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A 3-year-old boy suffered a life-threatening wound after he was shot Tuesday at a Oklahoma residence, authorities said.
Sheriff Scott Walton said the child's condition is unknown, but he will have his second surgery Wednesday.
Keven Her, the child's uncle, called 911, according to a probable cause affidavit. He told dispatchers that a 3-year-old had been shot by a 9mm pistol.
"Keven advised that he removed the magazine and cocked the firearm for his nephew," deputies state in the affidavit. "Keven stated his nephew pointed the firearm at him and pulled the trigger."
