Doctors soon realized the wound was more serious than a fall, and called authorities.

“We immediately sent deputies, secured the front door of the back door until a warrant was obtained,” said Montgomery County Sheriff Rob Streck. 

Deputies searched the home and said they found evidence indicating the child was shot with a gun.

According to the FOX 8 report, two people were home at the time of the shooting. Both adults were listed as the child’s mothers.

The child is now stable after the injuries were initially considered to be life-threatening.
