From the article:
The sheriff's office reported the shooting occurred near the kitchen table in the grandmother's home. The 19-year-old was "playing with the gun" when it went off, the captain said.
"When he pulled the hammer back, it slid off his thumb, which caused it to hit the primer and send the shell off," Tarleton said. "(The bullet) hit him and then it ricocheted off the ground and hit his brother."
Tarleton said the eldest brother was hit in the leg and the younger sibling was struck in a calf area.
Thomas Everhart was transported to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem.
Both were treated and released.
