A 4-year-old Ottawa boy accidentally shot another 4-year-old boy in the cheek with a BB gun Sunday afternoon, according to Adam Weingartner, spokesman for the Ottawa Police Department.
The boy received minor injuries.
Police responded to the incident about 3 p.m. Sunday in the 500 block of E. Fifth St. after the gun accidentally discharged, Weingartner said. The gun is normally kept locked up, but an older child in the home was able to unlock the gun. Weingartner said the incident is being classified as an accident, and no further criminal investigation is planned.
