SEDALIA, Ky. (LEX 18) — A man has been charged after an accidental shooting left a two-year-old with non-life threatening injuries.

According to police, they had to respond to a report of an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound to a two-year-old in Graves County.

Police found that the infant had access to a holstered handgun, which led to an accidental discharge that hit the infant.

Police said that the infant's father failed to secure the weapon, which allowed the infant to have full access to the gun.

On Monday, Zachary Page, 25, was charged with wanton endangerment in the first degree.

Page was lodged in the Graves County Jail.
