No charges will be filed.
From an article:
Jesse Rainey, 15, went with seven male friends early Saturday to an unoccupied Tuscumbia home belonging to the grandmother of one of the boys, according to ABCNews.com. They decided to spend the night there after a football game.
“One of the young men cut the lights to the house, then a few of the other guys snuck back inside, wanting their friends to believe there was an intruder,” Colbert County Sheriff Ronnie May told ABC News.
Rainey reportedly hid in one of the closets, and decided to jump out and scare one of his friends. Authorities say the other boy, who was carrying a .38 caliber handgun, was spooked and fired at Rainey.
The incident happened around 3:30 a.m., and the friends drove Rainey to a store parking lot 10 minutes away to meet an ambulance, according to Fox 40 in Jackson, Miss.
