A 2-year-old girl continues to fight for her life in a Las Vegas hospital after accidentally shooting herself with a gun found on a day care playground, Nevada police told news outlets.
A teenage boy fleeing a shooting on a bus dropped the gun after hopping a wall into the playground Friday, Nov. 3, police told KTNV. The teen shot an 18-year-old man during an altercation, police said.
The 18-year-old was hospitalized in stable condition, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
A toddler found the dropped gun a short time later and accidentally shot herself in the chest, police told NBC News.
“I mean, nobody expects their 2-year-old to be shot,” family friend Tawnya Rosenthal told KVVU.
The child is now in a medically-induced coma and is expected to be in the hospital for at least two months, Rosenthal told KLAS.
“No child should have to have that, that is a big battle for such a little baby,” she told the station.
The teen accused of shooting the bus passenger and dropping the gun was later found and arrested, police told KTNV.
