A 5-year-old boy is in critical condition after being accidentally shot by his 6-year-old cousin, according to authorities.

The shooting occurred at around 8:30 a.m. Saturday at 2833 General Doolittle Ave, said Lake Charles Police Sgt. Mark Kraus.

“We believe that the night before the father hid the gun in the couch, thinking it was a safe place,” Kraus said. “The kids woke up and found the gun.”

Kraus said the children were unaware of the danger and played with the gun.

Detective Kevin Kirkum is leading the investigation.
