Police: 3-year-old accidentally shot self in the head

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee Police are investigating the shooting of a 3-year-old boy that occurred around 2:00 p.m. near 106th St. and Heather Ave. on Saturday, May 3rd.

Fighting for his life after being shot. Police say the toddler was the one who pulled the trigger.

The family says the bullet went through his head, and that he underwent surgery at Children’s Hospital. The child remains in critical condition.

“It’s just really, really surreal. I just never would think,” said a neighbor.

Family tells FOX6 the toddler is Kevin Donald. An aunt says the family was returning from a shopping trip and the children were playing outside. She says a gun was left in the glove box inside of the mother’s car, and the boy somehow got his hands on the weapon.

“I went to the back and it was the next door neighbor and they were saying that, I guess he shot himself,” said the neighbor.

The neighbor, who asked not to be identified, ran next door to help.

“I brought towels and sheets just to kind of stop the blood from flowing, but not pressure it, but just holding, and myself kind of shocked because I’m thinking ‘what if this was mine?’,” said the neighbor.

She stood with the family waiting for first responders to arrive.

“We just prayed all together, it’s the only thing you can say,” said the neighbor.

As the boy was rushed to the hospital family and neighbors continued to pray for a young boys survival.

Police say the gun was recovered and no one is in custody at this time.
