Police say a 3 year old Sunnyside boy who suffered a gunshot wound to the head Monday may have accidentally shot himself.

Investigators say it appears the child located his fathers hand gun while riding inside his pickup and pulled trigger on accident.

The father had a valid concealed weapons permit.

Police say Washington State Child Protective Services has been contacted, and the case will be sent to Yakima County Prosecutors Office following the investigation.

The boy is currently in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
