INDIANA, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania State Police say a 10-year-old boy was hospitalized over the weekend after he was accidentally shot by his teenage brother in Indiana County.

The 15-year-old boy was playing with the hammer and trigger on the weapon when it fired on Sunday. Police say the teen believed he had unloaded the .22-caliber pistol after using it for target practice earlier.

The two boys were sitting across from one another in the living room of their Cherry Hill Township home when the gun went off.

Police say the bullet traveled along the 10-year-old boy’s skull just underneath his skin. He was taken to Indiana Regional Medical Condition in stable condition before he was later transferred to Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh as a precaution.
