COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Police in Ohio’s capital say a 10-year-old boy was accidentally shot and wounded at a home while playing with friends when they somehow got ahold of a gun.

WCMH-TV (https://bit.ly/2f8pZp4 ) reports the boy’s injuries from the Sunday afternoon shooting weren’t considered life-threatening.

Authorities didn’t immediately release details about how the group got the gun, who fired it or how severely the boy was hurt. There was no immediate word on any potential charges.

The shooting happened in a residential neighborhood about 3 miles west of downtown.
