(Newser) – A 3-year-old girl has been wounded after an AK-47 assault rifle accidentally discharged as her grandmother was trying to unload the weapon inside a Detroit-area home, the AP reports. Warren police say the girl was shot Wednesday morning after the grandmother found the rifle in the home. According to WJBK, the slug traveled from the second floor and grazed the girl's leg. The girl was on the first floor. Police say it also narrowly missed an 18-year-old who was in the basement. Police say the 3-year-old girl was in stable condition at a hospital. It was not immediately known who owns the rifle. Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer says there "probably will be some charges forthcoming." (Read more AK-47 stories.)
