LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 4-year-old boy remains in the hospital Sunday after police say he accidentally shot himself in the face on Saturday.

Family and friends identify the boy as Kamarion Posey. Police are trying to figure out how the boy got his hands on the gun.

Sunday, there was a teddy bear placed outside the home where the incident happened. A neighbor said she did it because she wanted to let the family know she was thinking about them. 

"I don't even know the family, but I cried and I'm praying and I'm gonna still pray and hope everything be okay for the child and the family," the neighbor said. 

Police say the boy's injuries are considered critical. Police say a handgun used in the shooting has been recovered from the home. Detectives have not yet determined if the mother will be charged.
