A toddler is in surgery after he was shot this evening in Tarrant.
The shooting appears to be accidental, said Tarrant police Lt. Larry Rice. It remains, however, under investigation.
Rice said it appears the boy's father was cleaning his gun when it went
off and the boy was struck.
He was rushed to Children's of Alabama where he was taken straight into surgery. His injuries are life-threatening.
Rice said police this evening are conducting interviews.
