A 2-year-old boy was grazed by a bullet inside a South Shore neighborhood home early Tuesday.

The boy suffered a graze wound to the leg about 1:45 a.m. when a gun accidentally discharged in a house in the 7000 block of South Harper, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

He was taken to University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, where he was listed in good condition, Greer said.

Detectives were questioning a male relative of the boy in connection with the incident Tuesday morning, Greer said.
