Child shot


Kentucky State Police say a 5-year-old has been shot in the head accidentally by her 16-yearold brother, who was playing with a gun.

Trooper Don Trosper said the child was in critical condition Tuesday at the University of Kentucky Medical Center.

Trosper says troopers were called to a home north of Manchester on Monday by Clay County Ambulance Service after the shooting. He said a preliminary investigation showed that a juvenile was playing with a gun that discharged.

The siblings’ names haven’t been released because they are juveniles.

Police told the Lexington Herald Leader they don’t expect any charges will be filed.
