MONROE COUNTY - A man and his four-year-old son are both in the hospital after a gun went off and they were both shot in the head on Sunday.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office was called to a residence in the 1200 block of East Zinnia Drive in Bloomington for a gunshot report. Deputies say the father was "play wrestling" with his son while carrying a concealed gun on his back. The gun fell and went off. One bullet struck both the man, and the boy, in the head.
Both were taken to a Bloomington hospital, but were later flown to hospitals in Indianapolis. The man is expected to recover at IU Health Methodist, but the boy remains in critical condition at Riley Hospital for Children.
