(CLARKSDALE, Miss.) -- A police officer's 3-year-old son shot a gas station attendant in the face with his father's pistol, authorities said.

James Collins, 43, was in critical condition Friday.

Off-duty Patrolman Randy Tomlinson had brought his truck into the gas station Thursday, leaving his gun in the back seat and his son in the front, Capt. Danny Hill said

The boy crawled into the back seat, pointed the pistol at Collins and shot him, Hill said. The bullet entered Collins' cheek.

Hill would not say whether disciplinary action would be taken against Tomlinson.
