A 2-year-old child accidentally shot himself Tuesday night, according to the Madison County Sheriff's Department.
Deputies said the child was handling the gun, unsupervised, at a home off Church Street in Gurley when it went off and hit him in the hand.
The child was taken to Huntsville Hospital, but his injuries were not life-threatening.
As usual protocol, a deputy said, the Department of Human Resources was called to the home.
