UPDATE: 13-year-old shot in Marion County

Posted: Updated:

MARION COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -- A boy was shot by his father in Marion County Thursday night.

In what appears to be an accidental shooting, the father was working on the 9mm pistol, replacing the firing pin.

He aimed the weapon into the woods and fired, hitting his son in the shoulder.

The boy was driven to Grandview Medical Center and later transferred by helicopter to Erlanger. He is expected to recover fully.

As is protocol at most hospitals, law enforcement is notified when they treat a patient with a gunshot wound.
