Police say a teenager accidentally shot a 14-year-old friend in eastern Kentucky with his grandfather's revolver.
The shooting happened Saturday afternoon in the Keavy community of Laurel County.
WKYT-TV reports three teenagers were inside the home and a 15-year-old was handling his grandfather's .38 caliber revolver in the kitchen. Police say he stumbled and shot the 14-year-old in the stomach.
The victim was airlifted to UK hospital. Tom Cooper, the alleged shooter's grandfather, says he was out of town at the time of the shooting and the boys didn't have permission to be in his home.
Cooper said the shooting victim was out of surgery and recuperating.
A third teen, a 16-year-old cousin to the victim, left the scene before deputies arrived.
