A 4-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the leg Wednesday afternoon while his mother was inside a Warner Robins restaurant picking up food.
The wounded child and three other children were left unattended in the car that was parked outside a North Commercial Circle eatery about 3:40 p.m., according to a news release from the Warner Robins Police Department.
“At this time no charges have been filed, however there could be charges at a later date,” the release said.
The 4-year-old is being treated at Egleston Children’s Hospital’s intensive care unit in Atlanta.
The name of the restaurant was not stated in the news release. The incident also was excluded or fully redacted from the police department’s daily report.
When asked to disclose the address of the incident, police department spokeswoman Jennifer Person responded in an email saying “the information included in the press release is all the information I'm able to release at this time.”
The incident is being investigated and anyone with information is urged to call Detective Jeff Herb at 478-302-5380.
