CHICAGO – Chicago police say a 5-year-old boy who was shot in the face in a drive-by shooting last year, has accidentally shot himself in the hand.
Police say the latest shooting happened Tuesday night in a home on the city’s South side. Researchers are trying to determine how Kavan Collins got the gun and the hearing of a man who, in the house at the time of the shooting.
In June 2016, the then-4-year-old Kavan was a shot in the jaw while walking with his mother and others. A bullet fired by a vehicle, struck him in the face and another shattered a window and pierced a wall to hit a 28-year-old woman.
The Chicago Tribune reports that police said neither the boy nor the woman was the intended target.
