The Bexar County Sheriff's Office is investigating how a child shot himself on the North side Sunday afternoon.

Deputies received a call for a shooting from a local hospital just before noon. When deputies arrived at the hospital, they learned that a 4-year-old had suffered injuries after shooting himself in the hand at the 24100 block of Acanthus, according to a spokesperson with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office. Details about his condition have not been released.

Investigators say a parent at the home left the weapon unattended. The Bexar County Sheriff's Office is now in the process of filing charges for 'Making a Firearm Accessible to a Child with Injuries' against the parent.

The investigation is ongoing.
