KINSLEY, Kan. (AP) — A 3-year-old boy is in stable condition in a Wichita hospital after an accidental shooting at his home in Kinsley.

Edwards County Sheriff Bryant Kurth says 3-year-old Alexander Amaya was shot Thursday night.

KWCH reports the boy was in stable condition Friday at a Wichita hospital. He was flown there because of concern about blood loss.

Deputies say the child was shot by his brother with a rifle.

Kurth said a firearm was out and one of the boys somehow got a hold of it. The gun went off, striking Alexander.
