BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore police say a four-year-old boy was accidentally shot by his six-year-old brother while the two were playing with a loaded handgun inside their home.

Police say officers were called to a local hospital just before 6:30 p.m. and found a four-year-old being treated for a gunshot wound to his torso. Police say the children’s father was inside the home at the time of the shooting and was able to drive the younger boy to the hospital for treatment.

The boy is expected to survive his injuries, and the incident is still under investigation.
