WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) — Police in North Carolina say a 22-month-old boy is in critical condition after he was shot in his abdomen.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports Damien Lopez Rumbo is being treated at Brenner Children’s Hospital.
Winston-Salem police say officers responding to a call on Wednesday found the boy inside a blue minivan with the gunshot wound.
Police said it isn’t clear whether a person in the vehicle accidentally fired a gun or if the boy was an innocent bystander in an intentional shooting intended for another person.
An investigation into the incident is continuing.
