All three were taken to an area hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, Sagadahoc County Sheriff Joel Merry told WMTW.
Merry said deputies are investigating how the boy was able to pick up and fire the weapon, adding, “this situation, while disturbing, could have had an even more tragic ending.”
