ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say a 5-year-old boy found a loaded gun outside his home and fired it once before he got scared and dropped the weapon.

Nobody was injured in Monday’s incident.

Police say the gun belonged to a man visiting the home of a friend and that the resident didn’t know the man had brought a gun and placed it outside the home.

The man who brought the gun to the home was sought in a domestic violence incident. He was arrested on suspicion of charges that include child abuse.
