WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 2-year-old Wichita girl is recovering in a hospital after being shot in the forehead with a stun gun.

KAKE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/O2Iz0c ) police initially believed the toddler’s 4-year-old sister had fired the weapon. But the girls’ father told the station Wednesday the 2-year-old shot herself.

The incident happened Tuesday afternoon at the family’s home. Police say one of the barbs lodged in the toddler’s forehead and shocked her. She was reported in fair condition Wednesday at a Wichita hospital.

The father said a nanny was in the kitchen and the girls were playing in a bedroom when the 2-year-old found the stun gun in a nightstand and accidentally pulled the trigger.

Police have classified the case as a home accident.
