LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Las Vegas Metro police arrested Michael Logan in connection with the Wednesday shooting death of a two-year-old boy, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.

Logan, 26, was arrested for owning/possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, involuntary manslaughter, child abuse, and arrest for violating condition of parole, according to Clark County jail records. Police did not say whether he was related to the boy.

Officers responded to the shooting at the Estates at Westernaire apartment complex on 3975 North Nellis Boulevard, near Las Vegas Boulevard at 11:52 a.m. Wednesday.

Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said five boys, all under the age of 12, were playing in the back room of an apartment, according to a preliminary investigation. A 10-year-old boy who appeared to be the one who brought the gun, shot the two-year-old in the center of the forehead, Spencer said.

Three of the boys fled, while the mother of the child shot and a neighbor attempted CPR unsuccessfully. Spencer said they were trying to figure out where the gun belonged and how the shooting occurred. A toy gun was also recovered from the scene, police said.

This is the second child shot in the valley within 24 hours. An infant was in critical condition after being shot in the stomach late Tuesday night. 

No further details were immediately released.
