CLIFTON, Colo. (KKCO) -- A seven-year-old boy is rushed to the hospital after he is grazed by a bullet.

The incident happened Thursday night in the 3200 block of E Hall Court in Clifton.

The Mesa County Sheriff's office says a child accidentally shot a firearm, grazing the seven year old.

Neighbors tell KKCO 11 News the boy was hit in the lip, but his injuries are non-life threatening, officials say.

He was transported to Community Hospital in a personal vehicle.

The investigation is ongoing, but because of the young age of those involved, no additional information will be released at this time.
