Young child shot playing with pistol


An Albany child was shot by a gun he found at the Dollar Inn Motel on North Slappey Blvd. 

Seven year old Kourtney Hicks arrived at the hospital with a gunshot wound to his left foot.

His grandmother told police that Kourtney told her that he found the gun under some couch cushions while he was at the hotel.

The gun went off while he was playing with it, and the bullet struck him in the foot.
