OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) -- An Ottawa man who accidentally shot a 4-year-old boy will serve most of his more than four-year sentence on probation.

The Lawrence Journal-World (http://is.gd/KI0Pgj ) reports that 40-year-old Brian K. Bruno will serve 60 days in the Franklin County Adult Detention Center. He then will serve the rest of his sentence on probation.

Bruno was sentenced last month to four years and four months for aggravated battery and a concurrent one year sentence for child endangerment. But a hearing was set for this week to determine whether he would serve the sentence in prison or on probation.

Authorities say the boy was shot in the leg with a handgun at his home. He survived and no one else was injured. Bruno lived with the boy but was not his father.
