PRATT, Kan. (AP) - A homeless man has been shot and wounded near a central Kansas park where a pair of teens were practicing target shooting.

The Pratt County sheriff’s office says the incident happened around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Authorities say two boys, ages 15 and 16, were target shooting at a trash barrel and apparently didn’t see the man sleeping behind it. KSNW-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1lVKEFw ) one of the rounds hit the man in the leg.

The boys called for help, and the 42-year-old man was taken to a hospital for treatment. The severity of his injury wasn’t immediately known.
