Two children were accidentally shot outside of a Chuck E. Cheese, Fort Worth police say.
The shooting happened Friday afternoon just before 6 p.m. in the parking lot of the Chuck E. Cheese on Southwest Loop 820.
Police say two 3-year-old boys came out of the Chuck E. Cheese and went to their SUV ahead of their parents. When the boys opened the door, they picked up a .380-caliber pistol that either fell out or was found in the side compartment.
The child who found the handgun accidentally shot himself in the hand, and the same bullet hit the other child in the back, a police spokesperson said.
Both of the kids were rushed to the hospital. One child had serious but non-life threatening injuries. The other child only had minor injuries.
Police say this is the second day in a row they've dealt with a case involving young children finding a gun and shooting it.
