Two children were injured early Friday evening in an accidental shooting in the parking lot of a Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant in southwest Fort Worth, authorities reported.

The children, both boys, were taken to Cook Children's Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, said Sgt. Marc Povero, a police spokesman.

The shooting happened at the Chuck E. Cheese's located at 4860 SW Loop 820.

Povero said the children left the restaurant ahead of their parents and went to the family vehicle, where they found a .380-caliber pistol. As one of the children was playing with the weapon, it discharged, injuring the child in the hand and striking the other child, 3, in the back.
