CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Chattanooga Police are investigating a shooting involving two children.

Police were called to Memorial North Park Hospital for a report of a shooting, around 7:00 p.m. Tuesday.

Police say the seven-year old was playing with a gun, when he shot his ten-year-old brother in the arm.

According to the boys' father, they were playing outside when he believes they climbed through the window of the family RV and located the gun in a closed cabinet.

The boys then began playing with the gun in the front yard. At some point the gun went off and struck the 10-year-old in the arm.

The ten-year-old's injuries are minor.

The shooting happened on Winding Lane in Hixson.
