    Police are investigating how a 5-year-old boy was shot in the shoulder in his Bronx home Friday, authorities said.

    The boy's mother and father were in their bedroom in Morrisania when they heard a pop noise shortly after 10:30 a.m., police said.

    They rushed to their 5-year-old son's room and found him shot.

    Police say it's not clear if the boy accidentally shot himself or if his 11-year-old brother accidentally shot him.

    The father drove the boy to nearby Lincoln Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.

    The investigation is ongoing.
