MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - The four-year-old Milwaukee boy that was accidentally shot on Wednesday evening is now reported to be "alive and awake" at Children's Hospital.

Doctors are waiting for swelling on his brain to decrease. 

Police now believe the boy shot himself after he and other children found a gun in his grandparents' house. 

Leaving a loaded gun within reach of a child is a misdemeanor crime in Wisconsin and carries a maximum nine-month jail sentence. The District Attorney's Office will review the case next week.
