An adult man and a baby girl were accidentally shot outside an Alabama Chuck E. Cheese’s Saturday, police confirmed to the Daily News.
The man was in the back of a car changing the baby’s diaper when a loaded gun went off from inside the diaper bag around 3 p.m. in front of a Vestavia Hills shopping center, according to AL.com.
The man was shot in the chest and transported to UAB Hospital Trauma Center.
He was found in serious condition, Vestavia Hills Fire Department Capt. Ryan Farrell told The News.
The little girl was shot in the leg with the same bullet and taken to Children’s of Alabama hospital in good condition.
It’s still unclear exactly how or why the gun discharged but police believe it was accidental.
