Two teens injured in Labor Day shooting
Two teenagers were shot in what appears to be an accidental shooting at approximately 2:40 p.m. on Labor Day when a handgun went off in a vehicle, striking two of the occupants.
Three teens were riding in a vehicle on Wall Triana Highway when one of the teens in the front accidentally discharged the gun, striking himself on the hand and then the other teen riding in the front also in the hand.
“Somehow, the weapon discharged,” said Madison Police Capt. Jim Cooke.
The teens pulled into a Burger King parking lot, where someone saw the injured teens and called 911.
Cooke said he anticipates the teen who discharged the gun will be charged with reckless endangerment.
If convicted, the teen could face up to 1 year in jail and a $6,000 fine.
