ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Deputies say a 4-year-old boy apparently shot himself in the leg after finding a gun inside a car his mother had borrowed.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says the mother said she didn’t know the gun was in the car. The child found it and shot himself in the right calf Wednesday. He was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, where he was listed in stable condition.

Authorities say the mother has no prior criminal history. They say the mother isn’t facing criminal charges, but an investigation continues.
