WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Police say a 2-year-old Delaware has apparently accidentally shot himself in the head after finding an unsecured gun in his home.

New Castle County police Sgt. Jacob Andrews says the boy’s mother called 911 around 10 a.m. Tuesday to report that her son had a gunshot wound to the head. Andrews says the preliminary investigation has found that the gun belongs to someone in the suburban Wilmington home but he had no other details.

He says the boy was flown to a hospital and is undergoing surgery. He’s in critical condition.

Andrews says detectives are interviewing the boy’s bother and that an investigation is underway.
