MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - Central Indiana police say a 3-year-old Muncie girl was shot and critically injured, allegedly by a teenage boy who had found a handgun.

Police said that after the girl was shot Friday at a public housing complex, her father apparently carried the wounded child to Muncie’s downtown fire station.

The Star Press reports (https://tspne.ws/1KnhD1p ) the girl was listed in critical but stable condition at a Muncie hospital before she was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital.

Police were told at the shooting scene that a 13-year-old boy had accidentally fired a handgun, wounding the girl.

Muncie Police Chief Steve Stewart says a boy in his early teens was arrested on a preliminary charge of criminal recklessness. He was being held in Delaware County’s juvenile center.
