MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire father says his 7-year-old son found a gun kept at home and shot himself in the leg.

The father, of Manchester, tells WMUR-TV the boy went into the bedroom and climbed to find the gun, which he took to the bathroom to play with. The child suffered a non-life-threatening injury on Thursday.

The father said he was out running an errand and his son and two other children were being watched by his fiancée.
