Wisconsin child shot in the eye with a BB gun

Some children were playing around with a BB gun, in Evansville, Wisconsin, when one of them were shot in the eye, resulting in a serious eye injury.

From an article:
The incident initially was reported as a drive-by shooting, but after police interviewed the kids, they admitted they were horsing around and one of them was shot in the eye. The injury is “relatively serious,” McElroy said, but he didn’t have more details because police still were investigating.
“We’re confident there was no drive-by shooting,” he said.
Police anticipate charges in the case because those involved initially lied to police, he said.
The article did not indicate the age, name, or gender of the wounded child.

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