Teen OK following accidental shooting in South Bossier

A teenager is alert and talking but in a lot of pain tonight after Bossier sheriff's deputies say another boy accidentally shot him.

The 15-year-old has wounds to the groin area, and not the abdomen as deputies initially thought, according to sheriff's spokesman Ed Baswell. The teen was flown to LSU Hospital where he underwent X-rays. Doctors now are examining surgery options.

Initial reports indicated a group of four to five boys were hunting squirrels, Baswell said. The group also was acting out a video war game.

The shooting happened off Country Forest Drive, just south of the intersection of state Highways 157 and 527 south of Haughton and west of the Koran community, Baswell said.

"At this point, based on everything we have seen, we are investigating it as an accidental shooting," Baswell said. "There would be no charges unless we see something different in the course of our investigation shooting."

Deputies have not named the boys who were involved.
