A 15 year old boy was taken to a hospital Monday in stable condition after accidentally shooting himself in Santa Monica, the SMPD said.

The Santa Monica Police Department responded to the 800 block of Second Street about 2:20 p.m. to a report about a gunshot wound.

Officers arrived and located a boy, whose age was not disclosed, with an apparently self-inflicted accidental gunshot wound to his hand, wrote Myesha Morrison, SMPD PIO.
