Halloween Shooting

November 1, 2003

By Scott Hunter

A Halloween skit went bad at the Haunted Forest Friday Night when a teenage boy acting out a scene accidentally shot his fellow actor. Police say the boys were acting out a tree hanging scene. In the scene, one boy was supposed to fire a shotgun loaded with bird seed shots in the air...while the other boy was hung.

During the excitement, the 15 year old boy shot the 13 year old in the arm. The injured boy was rushed to Phoebe Putney with what police say were serious injuries. At this time, the shooting is being called an accident. Police are still investigating but do not expect to file charges against the shooter.
