GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities in South Carolina say a child was hospitalized after being accidentally shot by her 12-year-old sibling.

The child was expected to be released from the hospital following the Friday afternoon shooting. The children's 31-year-old mother is facing criminal charges.

Sgt. Ryan Flood with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office told the Greenville News that the woman faces three counts of unlawful neglect of a child. Flood says "investigators learned she left three children, ranging from 6 to 12 years of age, alone overnight and throughout the day."

The shooting of the 10-year-old girl was ruled accidental.
