EDGEWATER, Fla. (AP) - A 5-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the foot after grabbing a shotgun off a table at a Volusia County home.

Edgewater police say the boy's grandfather had been cleaning the shotgun Friday morning when set the weapon on a table to clean another gun. The boy, who was not identified, grabbed the shotgun and fired it. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was treated for the foot wound.

Police say they aren't planning to charge the grandfather.
