A 2-year-old New Boston, Texas, boy remains in the intensive care unit at Arkansas Children's Hospital after an accidental shooting.

Jett Osburn, 2, accidentally shot himself in the head Friday evening at a home in Texarkana, Ark.

He was in critical condition Wednesday and is in a medically induced coma that is allowing his brain to "rest," according to a GoFundMe page set up to help Jett's family with medical expenses.

According to the GoFundMe page, Jett found a .22 handgun while his mother was visiting a friend. According to the page, Jett fired the gun and a bullet hit him between his eyes and exited the top left side of his head.

When Texarkana, Ark. police, arrived, Jett was en route by LifeNet to CHRISTUS St. Michael Hospital. Jett was then airlifted to Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock.

Police have not released whether any charges are expected to be filed.

Accounts to help with medical expenses have also been set up at Regions Bank and at TEXAR Federal Credit Union.

The Regions account is No. 219458835; the TEXAR account is No. 232440.
