LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say a 5-year-old Las Vegas boy accidentally shot himself in the hand, injuring his finger.

Las Vegas police say the child is recovering at a hospital after the Sunday morning accident at the home on the 4700 block of Luxor Way.

Authorities didn’t immediately say how the child got ahold of the gun, but said his mother was home at the time.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports detectives who investigate abuse and neglect also responded to the scene.
