An investigation is underway after a 3-year-old boy was shot.

It happened on Sept. 27 in Flint on the 900 block of Black Avenue, near Noah Street, according to Flint Police.

The child is in critical condition.

Police said the gunshot wound appears to be accidental.

Courtney Rutherford said the injured boy is his nephew.

"He's really special to me because he has my middle name. I am so concerned if he is going to make it or not. The hospital isn't giving us any information, nothing," Rutherford said.

A suspect was released pending further investigation.

No other children were in the home, according to police.
