Boy, 8, shoots girl, 7.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An 8-year-old boy accidentally shot a 7-year-old girl in the arm on Tuesday with a handgun he pulled from his backpack at a day-care center, police in suburban Montgomery County, Maryland, said.

The wounded girl was flown to a local hospital with a non-life-threatening injury, police spokesperson Lucille Baur said. There were six children at the For Kids We Care day-care center at the time the shooting and no one else was injured, she said.

The shooting happened just before 7 a.m. as the boy was handling the gun, which he brought to the center in his backpack, Baur said. Officers were investigating how the boy happened to have the weapon.

The children were attending a before-school program at the facility, which is located in an apartment complex in Germantown, Maryland.

D.C. is one of the most violent cities in the U.S. and the neighboring cities of that Tri-State area (MD, VA, D.C) are affected heavily.
