DENVER (AP) - Authorities say a 14-year-old boy is in critical condition after being shot inside a Jefferson County home.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/2inrAcc ) that deputies had arrived at the residence Friday to find the teen suffering from a gunshot wound. He remains hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Mark Techmeyer says the victim’s 15-year-old friend has been taken into custody after deputies tracked him down miles from the home.

Authorities had still not recovered a weapon Friday night.

The shooting remains under investigation.
