Two children shot at Dearborn home daycare

- Dearborn Police say two young children were shot by a toddler at a home daycare in Dearborn Wednesday morning. The Dearborn Police chief tells us both children were critically injured in the shooting.

Police were called to a home in the 30000 block of Harding Street around 10:15 a.m. Wednesday to the shooting.

Police told FOX 2 that a child somehow got their hands on the gun and shot the other two children, who are said to both be 3-year-old boys.

Both boys are said to have significant injuries and have been rushed to two different trauma centers.

According to our FOX 2 crew on scene, the home is known to be a home daycare facility. Neighbors tell FOX 2 they usually see multiple young children at the house on any given day.

FOX 2 has checked the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs and did not find a daycare listed at the address on Harding Street.

Police haven't yet commented on the identities of the two children, or on the identity of the child who got ahold of the gun.

UPDATE 3:06 P.M.: The toddlers are now in stable condition.

FOX 2 has a crew to the scene. We'll bring you more information as it comes in to our newsroom.
