12-year old unintentionally shot by father in Arizona

A 12-year old child was with other children at a party in his home, in Phoenix, Arizona, when the child's father unintentionally shot and wounded the child while handling his gun.  The father then fled the scene.

From an article:

Residents in the area of 3900 S. 3rd Avenue were having a party early Sunday morning that included several children. 
At some point during the party, the father reportedly shot his child while attempting to clear his gun. 
The child was taken to the hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the leg. 
The father fled the scene prior to police arriving and has yet to be located.
