A 5-year-old boy fired a handgun Monday he found in a closet, Glendale police said.

A neighbor spotted the boy just before he fired the gun in the front yard of a home in the 700 block of E. Barbarita Street. The boy also had a shotgun, which he was unable to fire because it had a safety lock.

After police arrived, it was determined the boy was being watched by a 27-year-old babysitter who was watching a total of six children, including the boy.

No one was injured.
