According to MPD, the one-year-old was shot at home on the 8000 block of Domain Street near Three Notch Road Monday afternoon.

Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste says the mother of the one-year-old was home at the time of the shooting, but had gone out back to a "mother in law" suite in the back part of the house to let the grandmother know she was leaving. 

Police say a two-year-old was also home at the time of the shooting and that the two-year-old told his mother of the shooting by saying his "ears were ringing." Police say the gun, possibly a 9mm, was in the parents' bedroom.
