KIDRON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a 17-year-old Amish boy was struck in the head by a stray bullet while plowing in rural northeast Ohio.

WEWS-TV (https://bit.ly/1V00L5W ) reports the boy was shot Thursday morning in Kidron. The .22-caliber bullet lodged in his head but was removed, and he was released from a hospital.

Investigators don’t know who fired the shot. They say it’s possible someone hunting squirrels fired and the bullet happened to come down on the teen. Wayne County sheriff’s Capt. Doug Hunter says the odds of such a thing happening are slim.

The teen was using a horse-drawn plow when he felt something hit his head. Police say he noticed he was bleeding, walked home to tell his father about the injury and sought help from a neighbor who called 911.
