    A boy was shot in the neck by a friend this afternoon in Mount Angel, the Marion County Sheriff's Office said.

    The boy and his friend, both 13 and of Mount Angel, had been walking near the Abiqua River and shooting at birds, said Lt. Sheila Lorance, a sheriff's spokeswoman.

    The friend saw another bird and began to raise the .22-caliber rifle, but it caught in his coat and went off. The two used a cell phone about 5:30 p.m. to call 9-1-1 and returned to the boy's home.

    Paramedics took the boy to Silverton Hospital. He later was moved to OHSU Hospital in Portland.

    The boy's injuries were not life threatening, Lorance said. The shooting appeared accidental, so no charges were filed.
    I think that all minors should always be supervised by a competent adult when handling firearms.

    I don't I was hunting on my own when I was 14,I observed all the safety rules and had my dad not been 100% sure I could handle my shotgun or rifle safely I wouldn't of been trusted with it.The kid didn't observe all of the gun safety rules and were actually breaking the law by shooting birds

    So you needed supervision until the point where you were able to consistently demonstrate safe handling practices. That sounds like a reasonable standard.
