Investigation Underway After Toddler Found Shot in Head

Both parents were at home at the time of the incident

A 3-year-old girl is in critical condition after Fort Worth police detectives discovered she was shot in the head Friday morning, police say.

Fort Worth police officers found the girl with a "severe head injury" when they responded to the 1300 block of Clinton Avenue just before 11 a.m. Friday.

The girl was immediately taken to Cook Children's Hospital, police said.

Police said the girl's mother and father were the only two adults home at the time of the incident, but there were also twin 2-year-olds present. Child Protective Services removed the children from the home.

As of Saturday afternoon, the 3-year-old was still alive, no arrests had been made and police were working to determine how the gun was fired.
