LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say a 3-year-old boy is recovering from a gunshot wound to the leg after shooting himself with a handgun during the weekend at home in northwest Las Vegas.

Officer Larry Hadfield said Monday the child was taken to University Medical Center after the shooting about 7:30 p.m. Sunday at a house on Sparklewood Court. That’s in a residential neighborhood near Gowan and Fort Apache roads.

Hadfield says both parents were home at the time, and police are investigating. No arrests were made.

Hadfield says he doesn’t immediately know if the weapon was licensed and registered.
