Investigators have determined the shooting of a 10-month-old baby in Rosebud as accidental.

The shooting happened Tuesday morning in the 400 block of Crystal Lane, according to the Gasconade County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said the baby was shot in the stomach by a 3-year-old toddler.

The toddler was able to get the gun from a purse on a counter in the home, according to the sheriff's office. Emergency crews took the baby to the hospital for a gunshot wound to the stomach.

Deputies said the child is expected to recover. The names of the baby or toddler won't be released due to their ages.
