An 8-year-old Point Township boy suffered a gunshot wound in an accidental shooting late Sunday morning.
Point Township Police Chief Joshua VanKirk said the victim was transported to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville by his father following the shooting that is believed to have occurred between 11:30 and 11:40 a.m. The exact location of the shooting was not revealed by police.
VanKirk said hospital personnel initially contacted Mahoning Township police about the shooting victim before the incident was referred to Point Township police at about noon when it was learned the shooting occurred there.
VanKirk said the investigation indicates the incident was an accidental shooting. He said no foul play is suspected.
What does "no foul play" mean? Isn't the fact that a little boy was shot with a gun evidence of "foul play?"
What do you think?
