A three year-old child is recovering after being shot in the head at a home in northwest Atlanta on Friday.

The incident happened Saturday at a home on the 1100 block of Second Street.

Staff members at Egleston Hospital called Atlanta Police after the child was brought in by his parents after being shot. Police interviewed the parents of the child and investigators say they noticed the stories didn't match, so they got a warrant and searched the home.

They later charged Sasiya Dixon and Gilbert Hardy with reckless conduct and cruelty to children. Hardy also faces gun charges.

The child is expected to survive.
