18-month old North Carolina boy unintentionally shot in the arm

An 18-year old boy was unintentionally shot in the arm, in Bessemer City, North Carolina.

From an article:

A toddler from Bessemer City has been hospitalized after he was shot in the arm. 
Gaston County EMS officials were called to a home just after 8 p.m. Friday after getting a call that a child had been shot in the left arm. The 18-month-old boy was taken to a hospital, and there was no update on his condition. 
Investigators say they think the shooting was an accident. Police say the boy was home with his father and a sibling when the shooting happened. 
Authorities have not said who owned the gun that was used.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
