16-year-old teen accidentally shoots 13-year-old brother
The facts took place Tuesday morning in Audun-Le-Tiche, in Moselle (France).
Three brothers were at their home in the absence of their parents when they found their father’s gun hidden in the house.
The eldest, 16, handled the pistol and accidentally shot his little brother, 13.
The ball came to lodge in the cheek of the adolescent a few centimeters from his eye.
After being taken care of by the Samu and the firefighters, the victim was transported by helicopter to the university hospital center of Nancy in Meurthe-et-Moselle where she is in serious condition.
The elder said he did not know the gun was loaded. The victim is disfigured.
