Police are investigating after a boy accidentally shot himself in his Northeast Philadelphia home.
Police said the boy wounded himself in a hand about 11:05 a.m. Thursday, when he grabbed a gun from a floor safe his father had just opened in the home on the 7100 block of Ditman Street in Tacony.
The boy was taken by private vehicle to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, where he was reported in stable condition.
Initial reports indicated the child was 3, but police could not immediately confirm that.
Other details about the boy or the incident were not available.
