A 2-year-old boy was seriously wounded in a possible accidental shooting inside his family’s home Wednesday night in the city’s Point Breeze section, police said.

The child, who was shot in the stomach around 9:40 p.m., was taken by his parents in a private vehicle to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia., said Chief Inspector Scott Small. The boy’s condition initially was listed as critical, but later was upgraded to stable.

Police went to the family’s home on the 1700 block of South Cleveland Street and found a semiautomatic handgun on the floor in the front second-floor bedroom and some blood near the front door, apparently from the child being carried out of the residence, Small said.

Police were told by the family that the boy shot himself, Small said.

Who owned the gun or how the boy reportedly got a hold of it was not known, Small said.

When police arrived at the home there were three other family members inside, including a 6-year-old child. No one else was hurt.
