An 8-year-old boy is recovering after he was shot by a gun that was inside a trash bin that caught fire, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

At approximately 3:44 p.m. Monday, officers were notified about a child who was brought to a hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Upon arrival, they found the boy with a gunshot wound to his lower leg, according to police. The child’s injuries were non-life-threatening. Officers then responded to a residence on the 8900 block of Devonshire Boulevard, where the shooting happened.

According to police, a preliminary investigation revealed several children and their grandmother were in the backyard of the residence cleaning up. While the group was cleaning, a burn barrel was filled with trash and set on fire, police say.

The 8-year-old was standing near the bin when he was shot. The family also reported hearing two more gunshots as they left to take the child to the hospital.

After canvassing the area, police discovered two firearms in the bin that were burned and partially melted under other trash.

Police say the incident appears to be accidental and negligent, with no sign of malicious intent.

JSO says Violent Crime Investigators and Crime Scene Detectives are still investigating.
