The Longview Police Department said the pair were home alone when they found the key to the safe and began handling the weapon that was inside. Police said the 15-year-old told them the handgun fired as he was returning it to the safe.
Emergency responders who found the 14-year-old bleeding at the residence rushed him to PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center in Longview, from where he was flown to Portland’s Oregon Health & Science University, which has a top-tier trauma center.
Police said the parents of the 15-year-old, who were at work at the time, told officers they had hidden the key to the gun safe and did not think their children knew where it was. [su_sky_ad]
