Rural Minnesota boy struck by stray bullet

An 8 year old boy in rural Minnesota was hit by a bullet that ricocheted from a gun shot by his brother. From the article:
According to a news release from Meeker County Sheriff Jeff Norlin, the Sheriff’s office received a 911 call around 12:45 p.m. Thursday afternoon from Peter Wuollet, who lives along the 73000 block of County Road 6 in Collinwood Township. The call reported that their son had been accidentally shot in the head with a black powder .44-caliber handgun by a sibling. The bullet had ricocheted off the ground and then hit the boy in the head.

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