JACKSON, Ohio, Jan 6 AP - An angry four-year-old Ohio boy grabbed a gun from a closet and shot his baby sitter, US police say.

Nathan Beavers, 18, was hospitalised on Sunday with minor wounds to his arm and side after the shotgun attack. Police say another teen was also injured.

Witnesses told police the child was angry because Beavers accidentally stepped on his foot. Beavers was watching the child at a mobile home in Jackson with several other teenagers and several other children.

Jackson County Sheriff John Shashteen says authorities are investigating. The child has not been charged.
