LOUISA, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky State Police say two boys are expected to recover from an accidental shooting in which both were hit.

Police said a preliminary investigation found that the children, ages 11 and 4, were watching television Tuesday at their home in the Blaine community of Lawrence County when one obtained or disturbed a .22 caliber target pistol. Police say the pistol was not properly secured and discharged one round, which hit both boys. The children were taken to the hospital for treatment, but police say they are expected to make a full recovery.

No criminal charges have been filed, but police say the investigation is continuing.
