RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina authorities say a 12-year-old boy was accidentally shot while playing with a gun.

Local media outlets report the boy and an 11-year-old girl were playing with the gun Friday night at a home near the town of Fuquay-Varina when it fired.

The Wake County Sheriff’s Office says the boy is being treated at a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

The children are related, but authorities say they aren’t sure how.
