BATON ROUGE - A woman was hospitalized after her 5-year-old child got hold of a gun and shot her in the leg. 

The shooting happened around 2:15 a.m. Thursday at the Ardendale Oaks apartment complex on Lobdell Boulevard. The Baton Rouge Police Department said the woman is expected to survive. 

At this time, police can't say if the gun belonged to anyone in the house and if anyone will face charges.
Kelvin Wilson has been living at the apartment complex for several years, and nothing like this has ever happened there.
"To show you how things have changed, it happened in my apartment complex. So you have to keep your guard up at all times," Wilson said.

Police have not released any other details related to the shooting at this time.
