LPD: Teen playing with gun shoots himself

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Lexington Police say what was first reported as a drive-by shooting on Augusta Drive Monday night, actually turned out to be a 15-year old boy playing with a gun who accidentally shot himself in the hand.

Police say the teen was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Because the victim is a juvenile, his name wasn’t released.

It was unclear if the teen or anyone else would face criminal charges in the case.
