14 year old accidentally shot his 10 year old cousin

Lately, police have been cracking down on gun related violence, by taking weapons off the street. But last week, one landed in the hands of a 14 year old, who accidentally shot his 10 year old cousin Deon Samuels Jr. It happened in Ladyville, right behind the Ladyville Police Station. Deon’s mother told the media that the two boys were playing on the road side, when she heard a single gunshot from inside the house. By the time she ran outside, he was staggering into their yard. The 10 year old was taken to the KHMH where he was listed in a critical, but stable condition. Police say they are investigating.
