Juvenile Shot In Head; In Stable Condition, According To Authorities

A 15-year old male from Clem is in stable condition in an Atlanta-area hospital on Monday after he was shot in the head.

Sgt. Mark Griffith with the Carroll County Sheriff's Office says deputies responded to a residence in the 400 block of Whooping Creek Road just after midnight Monday morning.

"The victim was able to tell us that he and another juvenile were on the porch," Griffith told WLBB Radio. "He said the other juvenile male was unloading a handgun when it accidentally discharged. A bullet struck the victim to the side of his head. At this time it looks to be accidental."

The investigation continues.
Charges have not been filed at this time.
Investigators will share their findings with the District Attorney's Office when their review is complete.
