Boy, 7, Shoots 52-Year-Old Neighbour With Handgun

Connecticut state police say a 7-year-old boy accidentally shot his adult neighbor in the chest using the man's own handgun.

Police say 52-year-old Anthony Joseph Delucia's gunshot wound is not life-threatening. He was taken to St. Mary's Hospital in Waterbury, where he was in stable condition.

Authorities have not said how the boy got ahold of the gun or what led to the shooting Friday in Prospect.

State police continue to investigate.
