39-year-old Mike Lee Dickey was babysitting an 8-year-old Casa Grande, Arizona boy. According to police, at about 2 a.m., Dickey was in the bathroom removing his .45-caliber handgun from the waistband of his pants when he unintentionally discharged the gun.
The bullet passed through two doors and struck the 8-year-old in his arm while he lay sleeping in a nearby bedroom.
The boy was flown to a hospital in Phoenix for treatment. No charges have been filed but the report has been passed on to the County Attorney's Office.
