LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say a young girl is seriously injured after being shot by her father.

KTNV-TV reports that police say the man was handling a 22-caliber gun in his home on the 2800 block of Taurus Court near Las Vegas Boulevard North and Pecos Road Tuesday night when it discharged and a bullet hit his daughter.

She was taken to a local hospital and was in stable condition Tuesday night.

Police say another adult was home at the time. It’s not clear whether the girl’s father will face charges. Police are still investigating.
