    PHOENIX – A boy was shot in the arm and pelvis while at a shooting range with his father.

    Lt. Chuck Williams, with the Phoenix Police Department, says the child was shot just before 11 a.m. on Saturday near the Ben Avery shooting range in Phoenix. The weapon was a pistol and not a shotgun as was initially reported.


    The circumstances surrounding the incident is still being investigated but 3TV has learned the boy was with his father in the desert at the time of the shooting.


    Lt. Williams tells 3TV, "The thing I wanna stress here is please parents, have your kids be careful. Watch your kids around guns."


    The boy was transported to St. Joseph's Hospital and his medical condition is unknown at this time but he is expected to make a full recovery.

    Need details. This isn't not good news for the gun world.

    The article implies that he was shot by the father, I am not sure that is the case. It very well could have been somebody down the line.

    Small kid. Hit in ARM and PELVIS.

    I'm gonna assume the same side of the pelvis as the arm, so it sounds to me like an adult was standing next to him and had an ND, or someone was off to one side of him on the range's firing line and had an ND.

    Poor kid. I hope he heals up quick.
