Teen wounded in apparent accidental shooting


WILSON, Kan. (AP) – Authorities are investigating after a central Kansas teen was wounded in what appeared to be an accidental shooting.

Police Chief Bob Doepp says responding officers found the boy suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest Thursday afternoon in the Ellsworth County town of Wilson. He was taken to a Salina hospital with serious injuries.

The Hays Post reports that Doepp says the shooting “appears to be accidental,” although authorities are “still considering everything.”
