ERIE, Pa. (AP)-- Authorities say a 3-year-old boy shot his sleeping father in the buttocks with a gun he found in their western Pennsylvania home.
The shooting occurred around 6:30 p.m. Thursday in Erie. Authorities say the child found a loaded, small-caliber handgun and fired it at his 26-year-old father.
The dad was being treated at a hospital for wounds that are not considered life-threatening. Authorities say it's not clear how the child found the handgun. Two other children were in the house at the time but were not injured.
