Child struck by gunfire, parents arrested


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Police say they've arrested the parents of a 3-year-old girl who was shot and critically wounded in Milwaukee.

The shooting was reported shortly before 10 p.m. Wednesday. The girl was shot while inside a home on the city's north side. Authorities say the child's father was highly intoxicated while handling a gun.

Police say he was arrested on a possible charge of recklessly endangering safety and domestic violence. The Journal Sentinel says the mother was arrested on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm and drug possession with intent to deliver.
