HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - Police have arrested a Hutchinson teenager after another teen was wounded in an accidental shooting.

The Hutchinson News (https://bit.ly/2bOVXS4 ) reports that police began investigating Sunday night after a 15-year-old arrived at a Hutchinson hospital emergency room with a wounded foot that required surgery. The teen said he didn’t know the gun was loaded when he pointed it to the ground and accidentally shot himself.

Lt. Thad Pickard says another teen reportedly lied to police when they asked where the gun was. Officers found the gun buried at a different location.

Officers are investigating how the teen obtained the firearm.
