Toddler Shot by Brother
A Cleveland County toddler is recovering tonight after she was accidentally shot by her 3 yr. old brother.
The shooting happened around 11:30AM Thursday morning at a home on Jenny Drive in Shelby.
Deputies tell us the 17-month old girl was shot in the upper body by her brother who had somehow gotten his father's 9mm handgun. The girl's mother rushed her to Cleveland Regional, and she was later transported to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte. She is expected to survive.
Authorities are still investigating and say the district attorney will ultimately decide what, if any, charges should be filed in the case.
