SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a 2-year-old girl is in critical condition after shooting herself inside a Sacramento County home.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. Tony Turnbull says officials received a call reporting the toddler had shot herself Monday afternoon.

He tells the Sacramento Bee (https://bit.ly/1RxuQaL) sheriff’s deputies and Sacramento Metropolitan Fire Department personnel responded to the home near Gerber and Power Inn roads, and the girl was transported to a hospital.

Turnbull says two women were at the home when deputies arrived.

The women’s relation to the child and how she got the gun has not been determined.

Turnbull says investigators are still at the house conducting interviews.
