SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. — A 3-year-old boy is hospitalized in stable condition after being shot in the stomach in a housing area at Fort Huachuca (wah-CHOO'-kuh).

A spokeswoman for the southern Arizona Army post says the child was shot Saturday night, but details aren't being released and the child's name hasn't been disclosed.

Tanja Linton says the incident is being investigated by Fort Huachuca law enforcement agencies.

The Sierra Vista Herald reports that the post has military police investigators, as well as those assigned to the fort's detachment of the Army's Criminal Investigation Command.
