A toddler shot two three-year olds at a daycare centre in Michigan, USA.

The children were playing in the garden of the home where they were looked after in the town of Dearborn when the incident happened.

The pair are being treated in a hospital in Detroit. Their condition is described as critical but stable.

It is unclear how one of them got hold of the gun, which was normally kept inside the property, according to police.

“I would just say that we’re going to pray that these two young kids are going to be okay. However it shakes out it’s a tragedy for our entire community,” said Dearborn police chief Ronald Haddad.
