Father tries to cut BB pellet out of son's skull after mishap [View all]

After a 12-year-old boy playing with a BB gun accidentally shot himself in the head, his father tried to cut it out of his skull with a utility knife, and waited a day before taking him to a hospital, Wichita police said Friday.

Police took the boy into protective custody after the father finally took him to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis, said Lt. Doug Nolte, a police spokesman.

The shooting happened Wednesday in the 1700 block of North Minnesota, northwest of 13th and Grove; the report wasn’t made to police until a day later, Nolte said.

The injury was not life threatening, Nolte said. The child will remain in protective custody pending the completion of the investigation.

No one has been arrested yet, Nolte said. But the father, 57, could be arrested later, he said.
