DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Police say a 7-year-old boy has been hospitalized in serious condition after he was shot by his 13-year-old brother.

The accident happened Saturday after both boys were dropped off at a residence.

Sgt. Warren Mitchell says the boys located a handgun in the home, began playing with the weapon and the younger brother was shot.

Mitchell says the homeowner was at the residence but in another area at the time of the shooting.

No charges were immediately filed. Police did not immediately identify the homeowner or say why the brothers were left at the residence.
