Venice, Fla: Sarasota County Sheriffs deputies say a 3-year-old boy shot his 1-year-old sister in the face as the two were in a car in the parking lot of a daycare.
A news release said the incident happened at 4:30 Friday afternoon in Venice, a small city south of Sarasota on Floridas Gulf Coast.
The girl was flown to All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg with non-life threatening injuries and is expected to recover.
Officials say the children were left alone in a car while their mother was talking to people in the parking lot. A report said the boy picked up a handgun in the car and fired it, striking his sister. Only one shot was fired.
