SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police officers Saturday investigated what led to a 6-year-old girl accidentally shooting herself in the leg.
The incident took place on the 3800 block of Caminito Aguilar and was reported at 3:15 p.m. Saturday, San Diego police said.
The girl's father drove her to a fire station at 5855 Chateau Drive, police added.
"We want to make sure we do a full investigation because we don't know the story. We're still putting the story together. As a routine, we still call child abuse to make sure that they do their investigation just to cover all bases on it," Sgt. Phillip Worthington said.
According to Police, the girl was most likely transported to Rady Children's Hospital for medical treatment. They say the little girl suffered a non-life threatening wound.
