WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Wilmington Police say a 10-year-old boy was shot in the head while inside his home. A man has been charged in the incident.

Officers say the boy was shot about 1:50 a.m. Tuesday in a row house. Authorities say he is in critical but stable condition at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Mayor Dennis Williams visited the child’s family at the hospital.

On Tuesday afternoon, police arrested 24-year-old Jaleel Goldsborough and charged him with possession of a firearm by a person prohibited causing injury or death to another person in connection with the shooting.

Authorities released few details about the shooting. A police spokesman says detectives are getting a lot of conflicting information.
