A 12-year-old was injured after he was accidentally shot by his brother Wednesday evening, police say.

The Omaha Police Department says they responded to the shooting around 6 p.m.  at a home on Cuming Street, near 122nd Street.

Investigators say the 12-year-old’s brother, whose age was not provided, accidentally fired a shotgun and injured the child.

His injuries were not considered life-threatening, though Nebraska Medicine reports he is in critical condition Thursday.

Police records show a 14-year-old was arrested in connection with the shooting.
