CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A 1-year-old is being treated after, police say, the child was shot in the eye with a BB gun.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers say it appears the child's 6-year-old sister was holding the gun when it went off and hit the toddler.

It's not clear exactly where the accident happened, but officers say at some point the child was brought to a gas station at Monroe Road and Washburn Avenue. That's where emergency crews picked the child up.
