MIRAMAR, Fla. - A 3-year-old girl accidentally shot herself at a Miramar home, police said Friday.

Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues said the toddler accidentally shot herself Wednesday night with an unsecured gun that was in the home.

Family members said they weren't sure what led to the girl's shooting, although police previously said the girl's mother called 911 and she was the only other person there at the time.

The child remained in stable condition Friday night at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital.

Rues said once the shooting investigation is complete, police will forward their findings to the state attorney's office for review.
