15-year old Utah boy injured in neck in home shooting

A 15-year old boy was injured in the neck when a gun went off in his home. 

From the article and news footage:

"He was conscious and able to talk to (emergency responders)," Adams said. "But he is in serious condition and has been flown to Primary Children's (Medical Center)."
Investigators are trying to figure out what kind of weapon was used and who — if anyone — was with the teen when the gun went off.
From another article:
Police say the boy was at home with his father, who was putting away a handgun and it accidentally went off, shooting the boy in the neck.
