UPDATE (Friday, July 11): The toddler accidentally shot herself with an unsecured gun at home, Miramar police said in a news release. She is in stable condition.
Miramar Police were investigating how a 3-year-old girl got shot in her Silver Falls home late Wednesday.
The child was home with her mother when the shooting occurred.
She was rushed to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, where a relative said on television she would be OK.
Police spokeswoman Tania Rues said investigators did not know what happened.
The shooting happened in the 4300 block of SW 132nd Way in the Silver Falls subdivision.
The mother called 911 around 9 p.m. Television reports showed family members walking around in front of the home in the gated community. A neighbor said he heard shouting when police arrived at the home.
“Police are actively investigating to determine how this happened,” said Rues.
No further details were available late Wednesday.
