Officials: 2-year-old girl shot in Pima County

TUCSON, Ariz. Officials in Pima County say a man was arrested after he accidentally fired a bullet through a wall and struck his 2-year-old niece.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department says the girl was shot in the leg while she was in the living room of the home Saturday, but that her injury wasn't threatening her life.

Richard Moreno, 23, was booked on suspicion of aggravated assault.

Investigators say Moreno fled from the home where the shooting occurred but later turned himself in.
