A 4-year-old boy is in serious condition after he accidentally shot himself in the throat late Tuesday, Florence County Sheriff’s Lt. Brett Camp said.
The incident happened at about 9:15 p.m. at a home in the Brookgreen subdivision near U.S. 52, Camp said.
The boy was staying with his grandparents at the time of the shooting, but it is unclear who owns the firearm.
From all indications, the shooting appears accidental, Camp said.
Family members are being questioned by investigators.
The boy remains in serious, but stable condition at a local hospital.
