‘Police on Wednesday are investigating the “accidental” shooting of a 13-year-old Tennessee boy while his family posed for photos with illegal firearms in their home. The boy was shot in the face’.
‘Investigators with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office have determined that a 13-year-old was accidentally shot in the face by a family member while posing for pictures with guns’.
‘According to the Sheriff’s Office, the firearms were illegally obtained. However, it’s still unclear how the teens got their hands on the guns before the accident occurred’.
“It’s OK to take pictures with (guns), it’s cool, it’s society these days. But know what you’re dealing with,” said Kristi Manning, owner of Carter Shooting Supply. “If you’re gonna stand there and take a picture with it, don’t stand there and take a picture with a loaded gun.”
‘The Sheriff’s Office says the investigation is still open’.
‘The boy is listed in critical condition’.
‘The police did not offer details as to who the unintentional shooter was but since they mentioned ‘teens,’ he or she was possibly young’.
