PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — Police say that a 5-year-old playing with a gun shot and injured a 3-year-old girl in Colorado.

The girl was in critical condition but stable condition Monday after the shooting. The Pueblo Chieftain reports (http://bit.ly/1o8xdqm ) that Pueblo police believe two other children were playing with a handgun in the backyard of a home.

Police say a 9-year-old boy got the handgun from the house and that a 5-year-old got the gun and pointed it at the girl. The gender of the 5-year-old was not disclosed.

The mother of the victim was home at the time and has not been identified by police.

The child who shot the 3-year-old will not be charged with a crime. But the gun owner, 22-year-old Adrian Chavez, was arrested and faces child abuse charges.
