The 15-year-old boy was shot in the abdomen with a small-caliber handgun shortly before 6 p.m. in the 200 block of Cedar Street, according to Sgt. Charlie Spruill. The boy was taken to a hospital, where he is undergoing surgery and is listed in stable condition, Spruill said. . . .
The father appears to have been examining the gun, which was legally owned, to determine if it was in working order when it accidentally discharged, Spruill said. No arrest has been made as of this evening.
I guess it worked.
