Officers' preliminary investigation showed the shooting occurred inside a vehicle just after noon near East 46th Street and Brush Creek Boulevard, said Capt. Leslie Foreman, a Kansas City Police Department spokeswoman.
The victim was described as a "young juvenile," but an age has not been released. The child's injuries are considered minor and not life threatening, police said.
The shooting was accidental, Foreman said, citing initial indications.
