RAVENDEN, Ark. (AP) - Police in Northeast Arkansas say a 7-year-old boy has been wounded by another boy while target shooting.

Ravenden Police Chief Tim McComas told the Jonesboro Sun (https://bit.ly/1wKfGHQ ) Tuesday that the boy had minor surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. He says the victim and another 7-year-old boy were firing a .22-caliber gun on Sunday while an adult was present.

McComas says the victim walked into the other boy’s line of fire and was struck in his lower body.
