ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – Police say a 4-year-old boy was wounded when a gun apparently accidentally discharged and his head was grazed by a bullet in Ann Arbor.

According to our media partners at MLive authorities responded Monday morning to the shooting at a home in the city.

Ann Arbor police Detective Sgt. Pat Hughes says the boy had non-life threatening injuries and was taken to an area hospital in stable condition. He says three other children – two boys and a girl all under the age of 10 – were at the home at the time.

Hughes says police were trying to determine whether an adult also was at home, who owned the gun and how exactly the gun was discharged.
