A 2-year-old boy was shot in the foot in a Maryland home Saturday, Montgomery County police said.

Someone called 911 about 5:20 p.m. Saturday and said the little boy, a family member, had been shot in a home in the 19400 block of Brassie Place in Montgomery Village, according to police. The caller said they were taking the toddler to a hospital. Montgomery County Fire and Rescue then transported him to another hospital that has a trauma center.

The boy is in stable condition.

The investigation into how the boy was shot and whether it was accidental or criminal is still ongoing, police said Monday. 

Investigators found evidence that indicated that the little boy was shot while inside the house, police said in an update Monday. Detectives also interviewed witnesses, including family members, who were in the home at the time the boy was shot, police said.

The boy does not live at the home where the shooting happened, authorities said.

Child Protective Services personnel were notified of the investigation, police said.
