|12-year old boy shot from the shooting|
From an article:
Sergeant Johnny Williams says the 12-year-old boy and his 16-year-old brother were playing with the gun when the 16-year-old tried to uncock the gun and accidentally fired it. The 12-year-old was struck in the neck.
Firefighters and rescue crews tell us that the child's parents attempted to drive the boy to the hospital, but suffered a flat tire during the drive. They stopped near a fire station, so they ran down the street and alerted rescue crews. Birmingham Fire and Rescue picked up the 12-year-old on Oporto Madrid Boulevard near Division Avenue around 3:00 AM.
The child was taken to Children's Hospital but Fox6 and he is listed in stable condition. The family says the child was rushed into surgery upon his arrival.
No charges are being filed against the boy or, apparently, his parents.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
