Toddler accidentally shot with pellet rifle

Posted: Updated:

A Sumter County toddler is in the hospital after getting shot in the chest with a high-powered pellet gun Thursday night in Smithville.  

Two-year-old Levi Umanzor is in a Macon Hospital and is said to be improving.

Authorities said the child's 17-year-old uncle was firing the gun, to empty the pellets, when Levi rounded a corner of the house and was hit.

He suffered a punctured lung and stopped breathing, but was resuscitated by paramedics.
