Minneapolis police say a 2-year-old boy died after he was shot by his 4-year-old brother Wednesday.

Police responded to reports of a shooting in Minneapolis' Riverside neighborhood about 12:45 p.m. Wednesday. Responding officers found the 2-year-old with a critical gunshot wound.

The boy was loaded into an ambulance by emergency responders but died at the scene. His name has not been released.

MyFoxTwinCities.com reports that the 4-year-old was playing with a handgun he found in a bedroom when the shooting took place. Family members say the father kept the gun hidden on a shelf in the closet and aren't sure how the boy found it.
