PACE, Fla. -

A little girl was hospitalized following an accidental shooting at a Florida Panhandle home.

The Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office reports that the 6-year-old girl and another small child were playing with an unattended hand gun at the Bell Ridge Apartment Sunday evening when the gun discharged. The girl was wounded and taken to a Pensacola hospital.

Officials say trauma alert was issued for the girl, but she was in good condition Monday morning.

The shooting remains under investigation. It wasn't immediately clear how the children gained access to the gun.
