Toddler accidentally shot by deputies

A toddler remains in critical condition after being accidentally shot by officers in Jacksonville as they attempted to shoot a robbery suspect.

Authorities say 2-year-old Daniel Crichton was shot in the arm and upper torso on Friday after a suspected bank robber forced his way into the car in which the toddler was seated.

The child's mother, Joann Cooper, was hit once in the foot. A 7-year-old girl also in the car was not injured.

The suspect was killed but has not been identified.

Five officers with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office fired a total of 42 rounds at the vehicle.

The suspect did not discharge his weapon.
