Accidental shooting sends three year old to hospital

A three year old boy is in the hospital after shooting himself in the head with his grandparents' gun. A sad reminder of the importance of gun safety and that all weapons should be stored away or locked.

Yesterday afternoon, deputies say the child was put down for a nap in the master bedroom at his grandparent's home on Puget Lane off Ella Boulevard in northwest Harris County. They say the child got a hold of an automatic pistol that was left on the night stand and shot himself in the head.

At last check, the little boy was listed in critical condition.
