It happened in the 8300 block of Maria Edna near Airline between Gulf Bank and Little York.
We're told two children -- ages nine and seven -- were playing with a pellet gun when the gun accidentally fired, hitting the seven-year-old.
The child was taken to an area hospital with the skin on his chest penetrated, officials said. He underwent surgery and was stable at last check.
