15-year old Georgia boy accidentally shoots self

A 15-year old Decatur, Georgia boy accidentally shot himself with a gun in his home.

From the article:

Investigators said the teen was playing with the gun that he brought into the Decatur home when it discharged and struck him.

Police did not provide any details on the boy’s injuries, but said they were minor.

The boy was taken to a local hospital for treatment, Lt. Braun said.

It was unclear early Monday where and how the teen obtained the gun. It was also unclear if the boy lived at the home and whether there were any witnesses to the shooting.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
