LRPD: Accidental Shooting Sends Two Teenagers to the Hospital

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Investigators in Little Rock are trying to figure out what led up to an apparent accidental shooting that sent two teenagers to the hospital.

It happened late Friday night at a home on Santa Fe Trail.

Officials say two teens, ages 14 and 16, were shot by a 20-year-old.

Authorities say it appears a bullet went through one of the teens and into the other.

Carl Goosen lives near the home where the shooting happened says it's usually a quiet neighborhood.

"I guarantee you everyone here is watching everybody's house. Make sure nothing bad is happening," says Goosen.

Officials say the teens suffered non-life threatening injuries and were taken to the hospital where they're expected to survive.

"Most of the houses that have any problem or when the neighborhood changes is when houses sell, people buy them and they put them out for rent," says Goosen.

Police say they'll hand the case over to the Prosecutor's Office for review. Officials at the Prosecutor's Office will determine if any charges should be filed.

More details about the shooting are expected to be released Monday.
