14-year-old boy shot by brother while playing with shotgun on Detroit's east side

Police say teen accidentally shot by 10-year-old brother

DETROIT - Detroit police said a 14-year-old boy was shot Monday night at a home in the 13000 block of Pfent Street on Detroit's east side.

Police said the teen was accidentally shot around 8 p.m. by his 10-year-old brother while they were playing with their father's 2-gauge shotgun. The boy was shot in the stomach, police said.

The teen is in critical condition, officials said.

Police removed the gun from the home and checked it into evidence. A little more than an hour after the shooting, police led the father and a younger boy from the house and into the back of a squad car. They might have been taken to the hospital to be with the 14-year-old boy.

Detroit Child Abuse Services were on scene handling the case, and right now the 10-year-old boy isn't under arrest, officials told Local 4.

It's unclear at this point whether the father will be charged. Police said he was at work during the incident.
