WICHITA, Kan. — Wichita Police are investigating after a young girl shot herself with a taser.

It happened Tuesday at a northwest Wichita home in the 2600 block of North Paradise. Police initially thought a four-year-old girl shot her two-year-old sister in the head with a Taser electrical weapon. But after speaking with the girls' father, he told them the younger sister shot herself. She is in fair condition/

Police say one of the barbs was still stuck in the toddler's forehead when she was taken to a local hospital. The father told KAKE's Deb Farris the girls were playing in a bedroom while the nanny was in the kitchen. The 2-year-old found the taser in a nightstand drawer and accidentally pulled the trigger.

The father said he had the taser to protect the home. He said it will be kept in a locked place from now on.
