3-year old girl shot in head by dropped gun

A 3-year old girl in Roby, Texas, was at home when someone in the home dropped a gun, which discharged and injured her in the head.

Robinson said it appeared that a gun was dropped, and it discharged when it hit the floor, hitting the 3-year-old in the head.

The girl was taken to Fisher County Hospital, then transferred to a hospital in Lubbock, where she was reported to be improving, Robinson said.

Law enforcement officers recovered the weapon at the scene, but Robinson said the shooting appears to be accidental.
