HOQUIAM — A five-year-old boy is accused of shooting at a man who was walking down the street Sunday in Hoquiam.

Police said a 21-year-old Aberdeen man had to jump out-of-the-way to avoid being struck by the bullet. The boy dropped the gun and ran into a nearby home on the 700 block of L Street.

Officers investigated and discovered the boy found the gun at home. It was a .38 special revolver.

Nobody was hurt in the incident.

Police want this to serve as a reminder to always secure firearms away from children.
