692x384_Carousel_DevelopingNewsA 5-year-old boy was shot by his 11-year-old brother — while using his dad’s revolver.

After the boy was shot in shoulder, the father, rather than call 911,  threw the children  into his
car and drove to the 42 Precinct and hailed down a cop for help.

The cop called an ambulance.  The child is hospitalized in serious condition.

The father keeps a huge pit bull for protection, which cops had to take away, along with two pit pups.

The father is expected to be charged on multiple counts.
