TRENTON — A 4-year-old child shot himself in the head Tuesday morning inside his home.
The child suffered a graze wound after the single shot was fired inside a home on Phillips Avenue in the North Trenton section of the city around 11 a.m. He was flown to Cooper University Medical Center in Camden and treated for his injury, Trenton police Lt.

No one has been charged in the case.
Bologini did not disclose the circumstances of the shooting or who owned the gun.

This is the latest shooting involving a young child in Trenton in the past two months.
