TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department confirmed its investigation that started when a 3-year old shot himself with a family gun inside his home in Amado is finished.

Sheriff's officials said the county prosecutor will decide if the parents face any charges.

A warrant obtained by Tucson News Now reveals when officers went into the home to investigate any child abuse charges, they found a shotgun in the kitchen in addition to the gun the boy used.

The boy shot himself with a gun that the parents said usually stayed in the kitchen and out of the reach of their four children. But somehow it fell.

Deputies also found about 20 other weapons in the home. Most were in a safe that was unlocked, but some were outside the safe, lying around the house.

The 911 tapes recorded the boy's mother as she spoke to a dispatcher:

"My three-year old son shot himself in the stomach."

"Is he bleeding?"

"Yes. He's bleeding all over."

"Is he conscious?"

"Yes. He is... He just happened to grab it. It was on the counter. He grabbed it and pulled the trigger."

The 3-year-old boy had surgery the day of the shooting and continues to recover.
