Authorities in Chickasaw County say a teenage boy was shot in the head when his hunting partner's rifle accidentally fired.
Chief Deputy Sheriff James Myers tells WCBI-TV (
) that the incident happened on County Road 190 shortly after noon on Thursday.
Myers says two 15-year-olds were walking out of the woods when the rifle discharged. The other youth ran to a nearby house to get help.
The victim was taken to Trace Regional Medical Center and later airlifted to North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo.
Emergency room personnel at the hospital said the youth was in serious but stable condition when he arrived. His condition was not available on Friday.
The names of the teens were not released.
An investigation continues.
