BAD:North Carolina Teen Shot in the Leg on School Bus
A 14-year-old North Carolina middle school student was shot on a school bus Wednesday morning, WRAL-TV reported.
Tommy Gray, who identified himself as the teen's father, told the station his son was shot in the upper leg with a .22-caliber gun.
Dustin Gray, a student at Zebulon Middle School, was in good condition at Rex Hospital, officials said.
Another student was being questioned, school spokesman Michael Evans told WRAL. Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison said the gun went off accidentally.
Investigators said the bus driver thought the sound was a tire blowing out and pulled over. That's when the injured student was discovered.
Evans said the two boys were friends.
The shooting happened about 6:10 a.m. on Halifax Road near Highway 96 in Youngsville, about 25 miles north of Raleigh.
Accident or not the boy who had the gun and his parents are in some hot water I would guess.
