TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department just released an Amado family's calls for help when a three-year-old boy shot himself with one of his family's guns.

The boy immediately had surgery at University of Arizona Medical Center and is expected to be OK.

For the first time, we're learning more about just what happened inside the home back in March.

"911. Where is your emergency?"

"Ummm."

"911."

"Um, my brother's been shot."

"Your brother's been shot?"

That's one of several 911 calls made from a home in Amado, about 40 minutes south of Tucson, on March 3rd after a 3-year old shot himself with one of the family's guns.

The boy's mother also called 911.

"911. Where is your emergency?"

"My three-year-old son shot himself in the stomach."

"Is he bleeding?"

"Yes. He's bleeding all over."

"Is he conscious?"

"Yes. He is."

Only FOX 11 got access to the Pima County Sheriff Department's incident report and the 911 calls. The boy's mother and three older siblings were at home at the time of the shooting. The father was not. Over a dozen guns are kept in the home and the family says are all usually locked up in a safe. But on Monday, March 3, one ended up in a holster on a counter.

"He just happened to grab it. It was on the counter. He grabbed it and pulled the trigger."

"It was sitting on the counter. He was sitting there with me and I didn't know."

The report says all family members were trained to shoot guns, and the 3-year-old even shot a gun the day before the accident.

In the police tapes, you can also hear the mother try to calm the child down as she waits for paramedics to arrive.

"(Crying) Talk to mom. Talk to mom. Talk to mom. OK. Sit still. Sit still. Sit Still. Sit. Still."

The Pima County Sheriff's Department interviewed all of the family members during the investigation and no charges were filed.
