A 5-year-old Lancaster boy was flown to the hospital after he apparently shot himself Tuesday morning.
The boy was inside his home on Winston Drive about 9:45 a.m. when he shot himself in the right shoulder with a pistol, according to the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office.
"The gun was in the house and the boy was playing with it," sheriff's office spokesman Tom Holland said. "It appears to be an accident."
The boy's father was in the home when the shooting happened. Two guns – a pistol and a rifle – were later found in the home. One shot was fired.
