BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
Birmingham police say a 6-year-old boy is recovering from a gunshot wound after accidentally shooting himself in the foot with his uncle's gun. Police say the boy is doing fine after surgery.
The boy's mother had asked the uncle to help her watch her son on Tuesday. Police said the uncle took him to a dentist appointment, then they went to a library. While in the library, the 6-year-old boy somehow got away from uncle and went back to the uncle's car, where he found the gun in the glove box.
Once the uncle realized the boy had left the library, he found him in the car and startled the child. The boy tossed the gun in the back seat, but the uncle didn't see it and didn't know his nephew had found the gun.
The child asked if he could get into the back seat, and the uncle allowed him to. While they were driving to get something to eat, the boy accidentally shot himself in the foot.
Charges are not expected to be filed in the case, BPD Lt. Sean Edwards said.
