St. Paul Toddler in 'Serious but Stable' Condition After Accidental Shooting
Police say a 2-year-old boy is in "serious, but stable condition" after he was shot Thursday at a St. Paul home.
Authorities tell KSTP the boy, Jacob Xiong, was shot around 12:30 p.m. at a home on the 1300 block of Beech Street in St. Paul.
A 16-year-old was watching Jacob and three other children at the time of the shooting. All five people in the home were related.
Police say the kids found a gun, and the toddler, later identified as Jacob, was shot in the head. Police are looking into this as a "tragic accidental shooting."
The babysitter did not see the shooting. At this point, it's unclear what room the shooting happened in and who shot the gun.
Details on the extent of Jacob's injures have not been released.
