A 16-year-old is in extremely critical condition after he was shot in the head by a friend. Deputies say the other teen thought the gun was unloaded and pulled the trigger as a joke. When he realized what happened, the teen shooter ran from the scene.

“Initially, deputies were told he accidentally shot himself,” said Sgt. Ben Beall of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. “Later reports determined that he was shot by another 16-year-old male.”

Deputies have now located the teen who initially ran from the scene and recovered the gun used in the shooting. click here for complete story
