DETROIT (AP) — Authorities say a 4-year-old boy was accidentally shot in Detroit during an argument among adults.

Detroit police say a family dispute arose Friday afternoon on the city’s west side. The boy was listed in stable condition on Saturday and a 28-year-old man was in critical condition.

Officer Holly Lance tells The Detroit News that a “little boy got put in the middle of an adult argument and got shot.”

The shooting came the same day that Police Chief James Craig launched an initiative called “Check Yourself, Stop the Violence.” Craig says the aim is to promote peaceful conflict resolution.
