A young boy is in stable condition in a Wichita hospital after an accidental shooting at his home in Kinsley.

Edwards County Sheriff Bryant Kurth says Alexander Amaya, 3, was shot Thursday night.

The boy was reported in stable condition Friday at a Wichita hospital. He was flown there because of concern about blood loss.

Deputies say the child was shot by his brother with a rifle.

Kurth said a firearm was out and one of the boys somehow got a hold of it. The gun went off, striking Alexander.
