According to the sheriff, all the necessary precautions were followed. “Nothing done wrong,” the sheriff said, yet, a 7-year-old California boy was shot in his chest and nobody knows how it happened!
The boy, whose identity was not published, was shooting at a range set up on his parents’ property. He was shooting a single-shot .22-caliber bolt-action youth rifle on Saturday, while supervised by his father. The sheriff said that there was no one shooting in the boy’s direction, but still, the boy grabbed his chest and complained of pain. When his dad looked down and saw the bullet hole in his shirt, the boy was rushed to a local fire station and later air lifted to the hospital.
The sheriff and the boy’s family are baffled. The case in being investigated.
