A 5-year-old was hospitalized late Friday after an accidental shooting, deputies say.

Richmond County sheriff’s deputies were called to the 4900 block of Horseshoe Circle about 9:20 p.m., according to a statement from Sgt. Glen Rahn.

Deputies learned that an adult was in the yard with a gun when he heard what he believed to be a coyote. The gun was fired accidentally, and the child was grazed on the head by the bullet, Rahn said.

The child was taken to Geor­gia Regents Medical Center for injuries that weren’t life-threatening.
