A small Clarksville child is in the hospital after allegedly shooting himself in the hand with a gun yesterday afternoon.
It’s no less than the fourth time this year that a child found a parent’s gun and fired it in Clarksville, with yesterday’s incident happening at a Terminal Road apartment.
Public Information Officer Jim Knoll says the one-year old boy found the gun on a coffee table around 3:15. The boy grabbed it and shot himself in the hand. Charges are pending and the child is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Gateway Medical Center.
