MILWAUKEE Milwaukee police have arrested the father of a 2-year-old boy who they say found a loaded handgun and accidentally shot himself.

Authorities say the toddler survived the shooting and was taken to the hospital Tuesday night. Police say his injury is non-life threatening.

Officials say the father was arrested because he left the gun in a location that was accessible to his son. The Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office will review the case in the coming days.
